Day Use & Recreational Activities

Summer

Fly Fishing
Noyes Pond is perhaps the biggest draw here at Seyon Lodge, offering Vermont's sole public fly fishing only pond. The pond offers a remote setting that anglers appreciate as much for its quiet sense of solitude as for the breeding ground it creates for native square tail brook trout. Rental row boat are available and are the only boats allowed on the pond. We have a Frequent Flyer Anglers Pass that provides unlimited fishing and boat rentals for only $95/per season.

Other State Parks
When you pay a camping or day use fee at one state park you get into all the other parks with day use areas at no additional charge! There are two other parks within the Groton State Forest that will add variety and adventure to your visit. Hike, bike, paddle, swim, learn about the history of the forest.

Hiking
Whether you are looking for an extensive all day hike or a quick stroll, Groton State Forest is the place. Groton is home to 26,000 acres of protected forest land and miles of hiking trails. Seyon Lodge State Park itself has a network of hiking trails. Take a one mile walk along Noyes Pond or venture further out into the Seyon Basin, loaded with wildlife and take in views of magnificent Spruce Mountain along the way.

Biking
Within just a short ride is access to the Cross Vermont Trail and the Groton Forest multi-use trails, perfect for a day of bike path, road, or mountain biking.

Picnic
Bring a picnic basket and enjoy the views of Noyes Pond and the surrounding mountain landscape while you dine. Or, if you prefer, call in advance and arrange a picnic lunch made by the park innkeepers.

Boating
While row boats at Seyon Lodge are only for fishing on Noyes Pond, there are other lakes nearby you may wish explore. Boulder Beach State Park on Lake Groton offers a large beach and boat rentals as does Osmore Pond (through New Discovery State Park). Or, bring your own boat to Kettle Pond State Park where there is a portage trail from the day use parking area. If you're looking for a quieter option you may wish to explore Ricker Pond State Park.

Swimming
The best swimming in the Forest is at Boulder Beach State Park.

Winter

Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing
Seyon Lodge maintains its own network of cross country ski trails and is the perfect place to kick back with a cup of hot cocoa, or something stronger, apres ski. You can also, especially midweek, connect to the VAST snowmobile trails, extending your mileage.

Snowmobiling
Seyon Lodge is just of the VAST network of snowmobile trails and you can get to the trails right from the park
