If you're looking to go for a swim, cool off by the lake, maybe take a hike, have a picnic or just kick back and read a book, Vermont State Parks Day Use areas are a great option!
Most day use areas have beaches and swimming areas, grassy expanses of lawn, boat rentals, grills and restrooms. Many day use areas also have playgrounds, concession areas and picnic pavilions.
Park entry fees are just a few dollars, and you can save money by purchasing season passes, individual passes or punch cards.
