Virtual Vermonter - Campgrounds - Brighton State Park

 

Brighton State Park

Description: From their Website: "The campground sits on the mostly undeveloped Spectacle Pond where it is common to hear loons calling at night. There are 61 tent/trailer sites and 23 leantos. All three restrooms include hot showers ($). A sanitary dump station is available, but no hookups. There are hiking trails, a camper's beach with boat rentals, nature museum, an amphitheater, a garage theater, and play area. At the nearby day use area there is a long sandy beach, (at the southern end of Island Pond), a bathhouse with restrooms, and rental boats.

"In 2000, an additional 430 acres were added to the park. Most of this acreage includes a series of complex wetlands and fens as well as critical wildlife habitat. Located within the park is the 15 acre Natural Area, which is noted for its understory of boreal plant species and stand of mature red pines."

Area attractions include the Bald Mountain Fish Hatchery, Ethan Allen Furniture, Maple Grove Museum and Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium.

Open/Close Dates: Mid May-Oct. 15

Cost: $16 - $23 (2004)

Directions: Brighton State Park is located 2 miles east of Island Pond on Route 105. Here you'll find State Park road, which you should take south for .75 miles.
