Day Use Areas In Vermont State Parks

If you're looking to go for a swim, cool off by the lake, have a picnic or just kick back and read a book, Vermont State Parks Day Use areas are a great option!

Most day use areas have beaches and swimming areas, grassy expanses of lawn, boat rentals, grills and restrooms. Many day use areas also have playgrounds, concession areas and picnic pavilions.

Park entry fees are just a few dollars and you can save money by purchasing season passes, individual passes or punch cards.

You may also be interested in attending one of our park events or interpretive programs

Day Use Hours: 10:00 AM to sunset or 9:00 PM, whichever is earlier

Pets are not permitted in day use areas except for Silver Lake & Branbury State Parks
