This is a wonderful State Park located on Echo Lake in Plymouth, VT. 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 for events such as large family get togethers, weddings etc. and a few cabins that can also be rented.

It's a beautiful setting, very peaceful and a great place to 'vege' alone, with friends or family.

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 tables all around on the lawn. Some were in the shade, which would be a nice option if the day was hot. Many people were fishing, and several rented kayaks, canoes, or paddle boats. We enjoyed the water, which was clear and weed-free at beach area. There is a smaller, roped-off spot in the shallow water for little ones. The entire grounds were immaculate, other than a little goose poo in grass. We will be back!

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 they were in the wilderness. The trail is listed moderate difficulty. There are some areas that are hilly over roots and rocks but I'm not in any great physical condition and made it up easily. The trail is well marked with blue blazes. I recommend having a water bottle always while hiking. The hike down took very little time so you need not think you have to save lots of energy for the return.
This is a fun family activity. We saw young kids, teenagers, adults including seniors on the trail.

If you don't go into Camp Plymouth and park up near the trail head there is no charge for the hike. The park does have a fee for the beach/picnic area if you want to make a day of it.

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.
