  1. We are very much aware of your comments and have heard the same complaint from other visitors. Unfortunately the property is owned by the Town of Shelburne and we have to work with what we have. We have
    explained your complaints to them on several occasions but they have not been willing to discuss it with us to date. I have forwarded your two comments on to them but don’t have an answer. It is very discouraging to members of the Kinsmen and Lions Club but not much we can do about it.
    We are sorry you are not joining us but hopefully in the future (not soon) they will discuss hydro sites. The Park cannot succeed unless somethings are upgraded.

  2. I do not think it is in your best intrest to leave it to long as from the information that I have recieved some camp groups are giving up on the expectations that you ” will ” have hydro hook ups in the “short future ” and are moving on to “other areas that do have hydro hook ups “

  3. Do you ever plan to have Hydro hook up at the Fiddle Park as you know pretty much your camping facilities are suffering from the lack of it

  4. What are the dimensions of the Tent Sites? I presume they don’t have water hookups?

    Last time I went was in the ’70s, and people were able to camp there all week; many planned a vacation week that way. I take it this is no longer possible?

    You obviously have limited camping accommodations. Last time, we stayed at another campground north of town. The Tourism Association doesn’t list nearby campgrounds – do you have a source for such a list, or can you add a list to your page here?
