Lake Shaftsbury State Park

Description: "Lake Shaftsbury State Park is on an 84-acre parcel surrounding the small but picturesque Lake Shaftsbury. The area operated as a private campground/cabin resort before it became a state park in 1974. It has become a popular park facility in southwestern Vermont.

"Lake Shaftsbury operates a group camping area with clusters of lean-tos (15) available throughout the year for scouts, church groups, and other organizations. Pit toilet facilities are available. There is also a developed beach, play area, and picnic area. There is an open picnic shelter/pavilion available for large group gatherings. The snack bar concession has rental rowboats, paddle boats, and canoes. The "Healing Springs Nature Trail" around the lake is also a popular spot."

Area attractions include the Bennington Monument, Bennington Museum, Hildene, the Norman Rockwell Museum and the Southern Vermont Arts Center.

Open/Close Dates: Mid-May to September (Labor Day)

Cost: $4/person/night (2004)
