This is probably the most beautiful, well maintained State Park I have ever seen. I just walked through while hiking the AT, but this is a park I will return to when exploring VT!

We'll maintain large camp sites, ample wooded space between sites, good location. Friendly staff. highway noise is a big problem night and day. Showers below average.

My wife and I didn't have too much time to explore, however, we found time to drive through campgrounds, hike a trail and visit the lake boat launch. Such a perfect place - campgrounds are awesome!
