Button Bay VT Camping – Day 1

This year for our annual Memorial Weekend camping trip we are at Button Bay campgrounds. It’s west of Rutland and south of Burlington and yes we are glamping again and it’s a VT State campgrounds. I’m too old to lay on a ground sheet and to tired to pick myself off the ground.

Rest area west of Rutland.

We took the back way up via Keene, Ludlow then Rutland. The drive was fairly uneventful with pit/potty stops along the way. It started to rain right as we arrived but by the time we finished setting up it cleared.

Went I said the back way up I meat it. Google Maps really gave us the scenic tour.

Like any other VT State campgrounds this one is clean, well appointed and with friendly helpful staff. It even has a swimming pool, that’s a first for us on our camping trips.

The main tent/RV area on the end is a tad open for me with no trees between sites. It’s basically a ring road with a well kept lawn and some site markers. Our cabin is thankfully off to the extreme right with trees and tall vegetation on three sides. Don’t get me wrong here but camping to me means being in the woods.

Our weekend home.

As Lake Champagne is right next to us I was hoping for a good view, however one would have to do some trimming to take full advantage. You can see a bit of the lake but give me a chain saw and I produce the money shot in no time.

JMan and I took a bike ride to Button Bay Point and checked out the pool.

Like every other camping trip this one will include meals by Mountain House, the just add boiling water type. We packed extra light this year and only brought the bear essentials. Kinda like sleeping on the ground….I’m too old to be carting the kitchen sink back and forth, beside, with the upcoming move I’m a bit over packing and moving stuff….hopefully at some point our future we’ll get an RV and glamp in style.

Who said camping was all about bad food. These Cheesecake Bites were pretty good.

Moon light and the glow from our neighbors cabin. Here’s what Google has to say about the moon.

“The Moon today is in a Waxing Gibbous phase. This phase is when the moon is more than 50% illuminated but not yet a Full Moon. The phase lasts round 7 days with the moon becoming more illuminated each day until the Full Moon.”
