Opening Weekend: Grand Isle & Jamaica State Parks

Located in the Champlain Islands, Grand Isle State Park has incredible views of Lake Champlain! The park has many tent and lean-to sites as well as four cabins with views of the water. Swim and kayak on the lake, stroll on the nature trail, visit the butterfly garden, play volleyball or horseshoes on the sand courts, or participate in an interpretive program at the Nature Center. Grand Isle is conveniently close to both Burlington, Vermont and Montreal, Quebec, and is one of the most visited parks in the state.

Planning a weekend at Grand Isle this summer? Take a look at the Grand Isle State Park Itinerary for some ideas on fun, family-friendly activities for your trip.

Jamaica State Park, which stretches between Jamaica and Londonderry in southeastern Vermont, offers camping, hiking, swimming, and outstanding fishing on the West River. The family-friendly West River Trail, which follows the path of the old West River Railroad, is ideal for walking, hiking, jogging, or biking. Continue on to the Hamilton Falls Trail for a view of Hamilton Falls, a stunning waterfall and a great place to stop for a picnic. Every September, visitors flock to the park for the release of the Ball Mountain Dam, a favorite event for whitewater paddlers.
