Pick your Method of Adventure…

There are so many exciting opportunities in Vermont State Parks for you and your family to have a one-of-a-kind vacation or outing. Exploring and experiencing all Vermont has to offer can start with choosing activities that you can do as a family. Such activities include, canoeing, hiking, biking, fishing, motor boating, horseback riding, and exploring Vermont’s historic sites.

Explore by Boat…

Vermont State Parks has waterfront parks suitable for every interest. If white water kayaking tickles your fancy, give Jamaica State Park a try for their biannual white water release. Maybe calmer waters are more your style. Check out the canoe accessible campsites at Green River Reservoir. If you don’t even consider it a boat unless it has a couple of downriggers and a drywell then Burton Island State Park might be the park for you.

Explore on Foot…

From quiet paths to arduous treks Vermont has it all. What better way to experience Vermont beauty then at the slower pace that is only accomplished on foot? Parks like Smugglers’ Notch and Coolidge offer access to the Long Trail, the Nations first long distance hiking trail. An abundance of hikes for every taste can be found in Groton State Forest (New Discovery, Stillwater, and Big Deer State Parks). If you would rather meander through a quaint village full of local artisans, Quechee State Park can give you access to more then you’ve dreamed of.

Explore History…

The history of Vermont can be found in and around Vermont State Parks. In fact many of the parks where built by this country's conservation pioneers, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). If you are looking for a full day of exploration try Mount Philo State Park, just down the road from the Shelburne Museum. Or walk in the path of early Vermonters and try Little River State Park, which contains an entire abandoned township. Diversify your day by visiting one of the nearby Vermont Historic Sites like the Bennington Battle Monument and then spend the rest of the day at one of our beaches nearby, such as the one at Woodford State Park.

Regardless of the type of exploration you would like to do there is sure to be a Vermont State Park that suits your needs. A wealth of activities can be found year round.
