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.

We stopped here for an hour on our way up the coast of Lake Champlain & took the short hike. The hike leads through a lovely forest to a beautiful point on the lake. The side loop (Lake Champlain Trail) leads to a tiny rocky beach where we looked at the interesting fossils from an ancient sea including a large... More

This is my favorite swimming place as the views of lake and Adirondack Mountains off the point one accesses at end of a lovely 15 minute walk from parking lot (or 5 minute bike ride) are unsurpassed.

Large open park with great access to the lake, I also saw a swimming pool and there were several covered awnings if weather is too hot or wet. Nice park ranger and rest rome

As a Vermonter, it is my pleasure to visit some of our parks each year. This one is always one of the best maintained. The showers have external entrances, which is more convenient and efficient than having them in the men's and women's rooms. There are a few sites overlooking the lake, and these go very quickly. There are other... More

Button Bay was easy, clean and friendly. We had a great time and tons of families were around. Bathrooms were clean and hot showers available. I would definitely stay here again.
