Very secluded place to take a walk. About an hour to a wonderful view of lake St Catherine. Clearly marked trails. Didn’t see anyone in 2 hours.

I’ve gone camping here so many times in my life. It is awesome. The camping experience is great, and it a playground for kids. The lake is awesome for swimming, boating, and fishing!

A nice park, good facilities and close to Rutland. We found the lake to be clean, easy to swim in, nice picnic tables, and a good day spot to spend time in. A nice family spot.

We were traveling VT in the summer looking for some swimming with young children and this was a great choice. It's a beautiful midsize lake and the state park had an easy rocky beach for the public. Lovely temperature in August. Great example of lakes...More
