VT State Park Reservation Policy Change
« on: May 11, 2022, 07:54:50 am »
I am planning another trip in VT using mostly VT state park. It was nice to learn yesterday that VT state parks no longer require two-night reservations for sites or lean tos between Sundays and Thursday.

That is an improvement.  I wish they (and others) would get ride of the 2-night minimum for all days of the week.

Yeah.  When I planned my first trip with a night at a VT state park back in 2018 I was surprised that I could not reserve a spot for one night on a Tuesday.

I know NJ has a two-night minimum for weekends only.  PA has no minimum at all.  Did a Saturday overnighter to a PA state park a couple of weeks ago.

It has been a few years since I planned a trip in VT, but last time VT state parks did have a 1 night reservation option for hikers and bikers, it required one to call the park or reservation office (I cannot remember which) to make the reservation as the website only allowed 2 night minimum reservations and it was not restricted to some days of the week.

New York State parks was getting very bad as the 2 night minimum and reservation fees made the cost close to some airbnb and small motels.

Hey New York, are you listening?
