Hey guys, I'm going to roving around VT for a bit in the beginning of June and was wondering if anybody had suggestions both for places to crag in the Stowe/Burlington area as well as suggestions for some decent stealth camping?

In terms of camping, my best bets around New England have always been outa the way forest service roads. Anything like that would be very much welcome!

I've camped in Underhill on the flip side of Mt. Mansfield and it was only a couple of bucks for really nice camping. Not really stealth, but it was right near the Mansfield trailhead.

Make sure to go to the Shed Brewery in Stowe...mmmmm Mountain Ale!!!

Hey, just got back from Stowe and we camped up by Sterling Pond. Just parked at the main lot by the boulders and it's the trail across the street and just over a mile to the pond. Keep going a few minutes and there's a lean-to and a couple of spots near the ski trails that are protected from wind and already had fire rings. Great sunsets, no tourists, and free. Also check out the Cabot cheese store if you're in the mood to fill up on enough cheddar cheese samples to plug you up for a week. Have fun!

He speaks the truth. This is a great spot, and the bouldering in smuggs is really great fun.

As for cragging, your closest area will be bolton, but that can be difficult to find on your own, and really nothing spectacular. There are trad lines in the notch, but I don't know anything about it, and from the ground the lines look a bit loose.
