Boating

 

Paddling at Half Moon PondVermont is known for its mountains and lakes, and there are many opportunities to get on the water in Vermont State Parks. Sometimes called the sixth great lake, Lake Champlain has wide open expanses, hidden bays and even state parks located on islands, providing great boating for both paddlers and motor boaters. Green River Reservoir offers 19 miles of undeveloped shoreline for quiet water paddling and the Connecticut River makes a great part day, full day or multi-day river trip.

Many state parks have car top and trailer boat launches and there is a marina at Burton Island State Park.
