Vermont State Parks


Vermont State Parks are an outstanding resource for anyone interested in enjoying our natural resources by camping, picnicking, hiking, biking, boating, swimming, fishing, hunting, wildlife watching, etc. Our vision is to provide high quality outdoor recreation opportunities to Vermonters and their guests.

The State Parks Division mission is to conserve and interpret on behalf of the people of Vermont their natural, cultural, historic and scenic heritage, and while so doing, to provide recreational opportunities and economic benefit. The emphasis in this dual role should be provided only within the ability of the natural and cultural resources to support the activity.

The Division works hard to provide highly trained and qualified personnel to effectively accomplish their duties and responsibilities including, but not limited to, high quality customer service, well maintained facilities, quality programs and services, and a dedication to meeting the needs of the visitors.

Division staffing consists of 36 full-time employees and about 250 seasonal employees to manage, operate and maintain the 52 state parks spread throughout Vermont.
