Kingsland Bay State Park sits on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain. Visitors can enjoy the picnic areas and historic buildings of the park, or rent a canoe/kayak for an easy paddle around this protected bay. Facilities to rent include an historic banquet hall that is perfect for large groups. Kingsland Bay State Park has become a favorite spot for local events and weddings, due in large part to the stunning backdrop of Lake Champlain.

Much of the 264 acres, along the shores of Lake Champlain, remains as a natural area. The historic Hawley House (1790) is part of the complex. This property dates back to the first settlers in Ferrisburgh and was home to Ecole Champlain, an exclusive girls camp, until the late 1960's.

Picnicking, swimming, and toilet facilities are available. There are several buildings available for large group gatherings such as family reunions, weddings, and company picnics. There are scenic trails along the shoreline of Lake Champlain. Boating, fishing, and sailing are also popular.
