This park is one of seven parks in the Groton State Forest. These parks are all within close proximity to one another (some within walking distance) and entry to one provides free entry to all. Combined, the parks offer a range of activities and attractions.
One of Vermont’s best kept secrets, Seyon Lodge State Park provides rustic and welcoming facilities in the midst of the inspiring beauty of Groton State Forest. Situated on the pristine shores of Noyes Pond, the lodge provides year-round lodging and meeting facilities for individual guests and groups, including small conferences, retreats and weddings.
Private rooms with shared bathrooms accommodate 16 overnight guests. There is a fully equipped commercial kitchen in which staff prepare meals, catering to the whims of your guests.
The Lodge at Seyon is situated within the 27,000 acres of Groton State Forest. The secluded setting allows guests to enjoy some of the most beautiful and undisturbed natural scenery in Vermont. Wildlife abounds and hiking and cross-country ski trails provide easy access to the solitude of the surrounding forests. Fly fishing for brook trout on Noyes Pond is considered among the best in Vermont. Boat rentals for fly fishing only are available at the Lodge. There is no swimming at Noyes Pond, but swimming is offered at the nearby Boulder Beach State Park, also located in the Groton State Forest.
Seyon Lodge offers all the best of Vermont, from the beautiful tranquility of Vermont’s state parks to the quiet, rustic charm of its B&Bs and Inns.

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 boats 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 $125 per season.
Row boat rentals: $7.50 per hour, $20 for half day (4 to 6 hours), $40 per day (dawn to dusk), plus Vermont Sales Tax.

Meetings and conferences
Seyon Lodge State Park is a great place to hold your organization’s next conference or meeting.

Depending on the season, you may wish to take advantage of other spots within the park to hold your meeting: on the beautiful wrap-around porch, or outside near Noyes Pond.
