Great place to take kids and have a cookout, use the paddle boats and just swim. Also a fun place to have a family reunion.

Logging trail and gold mining. Waterfront and cemetery. History and scenic beauty. Camp Plymouth is one of those rare spots that bring us closer to our country's heritage. You can feel the history seeping from the ground.

What a beautiful view from high up in the hills. The staff is very friendly and even allowed us to bend the rules a bit when we had more guests on our site than the rules allow. Sites are spacious clean and very private. Showers and toilets are cleaned regularly. Nice hiking trails right off of the park.

It is a wonderful setting that has a playground for the kids, rental boats (paddle, kayak), volleyball nets, grills, a sand beach with swimming (no life guard), a concession stand and lots of shade or sun for every need. They have two pavilions that can be rented... More

Plymouth State Park is a fine area for a picnic and barbecue along with a great swimming and boating area. It has fine recreational features for the kids.

I was very impressed from the start. Day fee very inexpensive, only $5 for one adult and one child. The attendant handed us a bag for our trash as the park is carry in, carry out. Lots of parking and the bathrroms were even clean (and had changing rooms with curtains). Beach was good sized, and there were many picnic... More

Whether you spend the day at the park or not, The Vista Trail is worth the short hike to look over the lake and area. It is great exercise for the half mile up and half mile return. There were young children doing the hike and I would imagine that the hike gave them a sense of adventure, thinking that... More

This is a great place for kids and adults. We rented paddle boats and took the kids around for a ride. Then they swam for a bit and played in the sand. We got some food from the snack stand and let the kids play on the playground which is a nice newer metal structure.

We have used the park a number of times, enjoyed it. Boats available for rent. Careful in early June, as the black flies can drive you batty. There is a free weekend in June, where ALL the state parks in VT are fun to see.

When the Boy Scout council closed Camp Plymouth, The state acquired one of the best beaches with a really long shallow swimming area great for families. the walk from the parking area is a little long, but they do offer wagons to cary your stuff. The bay on the north side offers good paddle boating away from speed boats in... More
