This is a cute, tiny park with some truly amazing views of the lake, the Green Mountains, and the Adirondaks! The day use area is nice with a pool and playground. There is camping in two different loops, one is WAY better for RV's, really open, the other is more private with bushes around almost every site :) The views... More

Located just beside Lake Champlain. The campground is well-maintained. Restrooms and bath houses were very clean. Bring quarters for operating the showers.

Spent almost a week camping at Button Bay, fishing Lake Champlain, and touring the area. The state park is a splendid place to camp with very nice amenities like spotless rest rooms with showers, a nature center with walking paths, canoe and kayak rentals, a large playground area, bike paths and plenty of space. It is very quiet at night... More

Great place for launching a canoe or renting one from their onsite options. No dogs allowed in the park (sadly) but they will allow you to transport your dog to the boat launch and leave from there on one of their rentals so I deeply appreciate that from them (Kill Kare State Park in St. Albans does the same which...

We stayed three nights at Button Bay State Park as part of an extended family-and-friends group in two of the lovely cabins near the edge of the park. A wonderful stay! Our cabin was immaculate, had a futon and two bunk beds, firepit outside, and two lovely adirondack chairs on the covered porch. Restrooms and showers at the central area... More

We came here to enjoy the beautiful view on the lake and of course to take a short walk to button point, where we could take a swim in the lake. The park also has a swimming pool and kids game. I recommend a short visit.

Loved the site that we were on, Site 52 right on the lake. Sad that there was so much rain before we arrived in the travel camper that the ground was saturated, aka swamp. We didn't get the stone driveway like some other sites had. Sorry that there were tracks when we finally got the 13,000 lb camper out of... More

Much of the shoreline here is a swamp, but there are several places you can access the lake. I walked the nature trail to the point, which is pretty. There is an interesting carving on the stones here, only partially legible now (Capt. S.B. something left his name in 1931). The park has camping sites and lean-tos and a few... More
