“Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.” –John Muir in a letter to his wife Louie in July 1888
Camping on the Battenkill is not the wilderness that John Muir was talking about. The campground does however hold a place in nature that is close to many major cities and fills a need for people wanting to get away to connect with nature.
Muir’s greatest contributions to preserving wilderness areas was his achievement in promoting the idea that wilderness had spiritual as well as economic value. His writings appeared in four of the major magazines of his time. The power of his words, along with other movers and shakers of the national park system, helped readers to understand the importance of preserving wilderness for future generations.
Private campgrounds are as varied as national parks are, from the layout of sites to the amenities offered. All have a place for campers to expand and explore their comfort zone in the outdoors. Camping on the Battenkill offers large sites that can have you nestled among the tree to framing the perimeter of the open meadow.
Camping is a community of people who travel with a goal to create a temporary home in a natural setting. Many of our campers tell us of lifelong friends they have met, the shared outdoor living experiences and explorations of the area.
Camping on the Battenkill is not some vast tract of unspoiled land held in the hands of the government. It is a place to camp along the Battenkill River, to hike in the Green Mountains and to be silent letting the dust settles as the sights and sounds of nature reconnect the spirit to the land.
Where do you go to be silent and listen to the heartbeat of nature? Six months out of the year I have sat quietly along the Battenkill and Roaring Branch Rivers. During the camping season, I pause as I walk through the campground listen to people enjoying and taking in their surroundings. To own this camping dream visit www.campingonbattenkillforsale.com
