Picnics

 

Geocaching in Vermont State Parks

What a great way to spend the afternoon: pack up the family, grab the cooler and some charcoal and spend a day by the lake fishing and swimming. When you’re ready, fire up the grill and enjoy burgers, dogs, frosty drinks or s’mores. When it might be hard to get away for a long stretch of time, just a few hours away can feel like a mini-vacation.

Vermont State Parks has many individual picnic areas throughout the state. Each has a hibachi or stone fireplace with grills and a picnic bench, the perfect size for a family or some friends. Some are open and lakeside with sweeping views, and some are in secluded little areas surrounded by woods.

Vermont State Parks also has covered picnic pavilions with seating for 30 – 350 people and group-sized grills which are great for large group events.

Most of our favorite picnicking parks also offer swimming, fishing, boat rentals, horseshoes, playgrounds and sometimes snack bars.
