Pool looked fun. If I had my swimsuit on I would have gone in. Ranger was nice. Big barbecue area. Nice roofed hut.

I stayed one night but had planned on 2 nights. I dry camped with a small pop up camper. My first time in upstate VT and found the drive there a little scary. RT 7 is a small 2 lane road, bumpy and curvy, riddled with fast driving tractor trailers who will ride your bumper without mercy. The scenery there,... More

We booked one campsite for 8 people and had an amazing experience. Facilities were good, clean restrooms and far from city-noise. Look for a lake front site while booking for even a better experience.

I'll start off and say this park is in fact well maintained and great for little kids with it's playground and pool. However, that said you'll be camping in a wide open field surrounded by RVs. I would not recommend this park for tent camping! We arrived after a rainy week and the "site" we were on was in the... More

Do NOT trust the recorded message that says the pool is open. Drove 45 minutes so my kids could enjoy one last day of swimming. Found out upon arriving that the pool was closed. The lake is beautiful, but there is no place to swim at Button Bay except the pool. Decided to pay the entry fee anyway and had... More

Our family camped for an extended weekend in August. This state park offers lots of outdoor activities. The view of Lake Champlain is magnificent. We could actually look out at the lake from our campsite. This is rustic camping since there are no water, electric, or sewer hookups. There is a pool with lifeguards but no beach to swim at....

I am a city person and I find myself loving every minute of staying at the park. I choose to kayak on the lake and I see one beautiful mountain after another. The houses surrounding the lake look like million dollar homes. For a few minutes, I wish I were living there. I also rent a lean-to for 2 nights... More

We didn't camp out, albeit we wished we had a camper! The lake is stunning, the grounds and trails are beautifully kept. Vermont should be very proud to offer travelers this treasure! Thank GOD it is not a federal park. Visited during the so called 'shut-down' .

State parks in Vermont make great biking tour stops. This one is right on Lake Champlain, close to good food, and perfect for a night or two.

A good family venue, picnicking, swimming, short walks, camping. If you spend time here, make sure you also visit the nearby Kingsland Bay State Park as well, which has a walk around the peninsula which is among the most stunning short walks in the State.
