Mt. Philo State Park

Description: "The 168-acre park is located atop Mt. Philo (968' elevation) and overlooks the Lake Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains of New York. A narrow, steep road (not recommended for trailers) provides visitors access to the top of the mountain. This is Vermont's oldest state park, created in 1924.

"There are two small camping areas with a total of 10 sites including 3 lean-tos, located at the top of the mountain and on the mountainside. Flush toilets and hot showers ($) are provided. The mountaintop picnic area offers spectacular views of the lake, valley, and mountains to the west. An enclosed picnic shelter is available for large group gatherings. Hiking trails lead from the summit to the base. Swimming is available at Kingsland Bay State Park (6 miles) or Button Bay State Park (15 miles). There is boating, fishing, and sailing in nearby Lake Champlain."

Local attractions include the Basin Harbor Maritime Museum, Chimney Point, Fort Ticonderoga, Shelburne Museum and the Morgan Horse Farm.
