  • Actually a nice park, but seems to be closed in winter, however there are no signs or anything informing about that.
  • Another great VT State Park. The lake is beautiful, great to fish and swim. The campground is also very nicely kept, clean bathrooms and showers. Ice and wood for sale like all VT state parks with campgrounds. My only caution is that its a hell of a hike to the lake area.
  • Another beautiful VT park. Excellent lake and extensive campsites available. Well marked trail system.
  • Enjoyed a boat ride. There is an entrance fee for each person including children.
  • Quiet and serine family surroundings. They charge a small entrance fee and have canoes, bike peddle boats, stand up paddle board and kayaks that you can rent by the hour. Property is carry in carry out and they try to follow the BSA outdoor code. Staff is polite and accommodating. On site BBQ / picnic tables available. Great time.
