{photo diary} Camping in Vermont

This past weekend I headed to Jamaica State Park in Vermont for some camping! Originally my boyfriend and I were going to go for our 1 year anniversary in July but my parents planned a family vacation to Rhode Island so we changed our plans. We changed our dates to match up with when my Aunt & Uncle were going with my cousin and youngest and then my other brother tagged along as well! We've been going to this campground since I was 9 or 10 so it's one of my favorite vacation spots.

If you're within a few hours of it, Jamaica State Park is a nice cheap option for a weekend (or longer) trip! The trip was just over $100 and we divided that by 4 people, so super affordable! I call it half-glamping because they do have bathrooms and showers - you pay for hot water. I don't usually shower while we're there because I like to live dangerously (or swim in the river.)

The trip was full of hiking, (illegally) feeding chipmunks, sitting by the fire, eating smores and grilling up tasty food! We also spent one morning in Weston, Vermont to go to my favorite store. More on that tomorrow!  Here are some photos from the trip!

Always have to do a handstand
S'mores are the best!

Can you see the Big Dipper?!!!

The mos treacherous trail. We biked 2 miles and then hiked UPHILL for 1 mile to get here.

  1. I'm not a camping person but it does look beautiful - and I like that you can get hot water for a shower, haha! :)

    Hope that you are having a great week so far! It's really cold here but I'm enjoying layering up for winter :)
