Burlington Campground Bottom Line

Burlington Campground put the team at NextCampsite.com in an odd position, in that we struggled to find anything good about this campground. We found that once you get past the amazement of looking up at some of the oldest and tallest living things on the planet, you realize that Burlington Campground offers a pretty terrible camping experience. Campsites in Burlington are right on top of each other, many are right next to the traffic on Avenue of the Giants, and there is not a single campsite that offers privacy.

If you are looking for privacy and relaxation when camping, this is not the campsite for you. Look at Hidden Springs or Albee Creek Campground instead, they offer better camping experiences.
