Vermont State Parks Announces Summer Camping Giveaway

To share the joy of camping with Vermonters, Vermont State Parks will be launching a new promotion designed to encourage day-users to try camping. The Random Acts of Camping program rewards lucky visitors to day-use parks with a two free nights of their choice of tent, lean-to, RV, or cabin camping at a Vermont State Park. One winner will be chosen every weekend from June 21 – August 3, weather permitting.

The program was developed as a way to increase statewide accessibility to camping and to foster a lifelong love of the outdoors. Vermont State Parks will be giving away the free park stays to day-users at Waterbury Center, Lake Shaftsbury, Sand Bar, Boulder Beach, Mt. Philo, Camp Plymouth, and Crystal Lake State Parks during busy weekends this summer. The winners will be chosen at random by park staff. Winners will also receive personal trip planning assistance from the Parks Sales & Service Manager.

“Camping with your family and friends creates memories that can last a lifetime. Our hope is that this promotional program encourages a few more people to realize those wonderful benefits,” says Craig Whipple, Director of Vermont State Parks.

Random Acts of Camping will kick off at Waterbury Center State Park this weekend. Announcements about when and where the promotion will be taking place will be made over the Vermont State Parks website, Facebook and Twitter feeds.
