We were looking for a little time on the lake after coming in from Stowe. The Shelburne Museum was closing soon so we saw this on the map and decided to stop. Small cove rather than views of larger aspects of lake, but boats on the water, swimming area, small area for walking in pretty wooded environment. Large grassy area... More

Serene, not crowded, beautiful park. Cliff jumping and rock climbing at your own risk, but not unsafe. Beautiful.

What a fabulous park! The walking trails are expansive, great views of Lake Champlain from high on the cliffs. There is also a stone beach with a rental hut for canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards, swimming area. Bathrooms are in the rental hut. You have to pay for parking in the woods of the park but there is a large... More

Pleasant wooded walk if you care for the path less traveled .... plenty of exploring as the few paths criss cross and circle back .... and a nice beach on the Shelburne Bay side .... walk all the way to the end at the Point and you are at the mouth of the bay overlooking the Lake .

GREAT hiking spot for a stroll, dog walking or just having a day outside. My fiance and I decided to stop by here on our way out of town and we weren't disappointed. This was our first visit to the Burlington area, so we were pleasantly surprised to find this gem. Beautiful views, well maintained trails. Could use some more... More

I live next door so have hiked and skied the trails many times. This is a small park with nice terrain, trees, and flora. Good lake views from the edges, some high, some at waters edge. Also good for fishing and swimming (in summer).

Situated not-too-far from US-7, Red Rocks Park is a small pleasant space on Lake Champlain's shore, with a view West towards the Adirondacks. Not a lot of parking here, and you do have to pay or use a season pass, but in return, you'll find a spot affording shade on a hot summer day.

This is a lovely park, lots of good long trails, perfect for walking dogs. When it opens up the view of Lake Champlain is wonderful, and theres some nice swimming options too

We have walked these trails numerous times this year,always a pleasure.But there is also a nice little beach there,but it is quite a chore to get there.The parking area is quite a ways from the beach,requiring down and up a good sized hill.This is not good if you have a couple of kids in tow with beach necessities.There is a...
