“Offering Spectacular Views of the West!”
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. A small camping area with a total of 10 sites including 3 lean-tos is located at the top of the mountain. Flush toilets and hot showers ($) are provided. The mountaintop picnic area offers spectacular views of the lake, valley, and mountains to the west. 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.
Great spot to picnic any season! Wonderful sledding in the winter. Good hawk watch location for fall migration.
