Ferrisburgh - Button Bay State Park

5 Button Bay State Park Rd.

Button Bay, a 253-acre park, is located on a bluff in Ferrisburgh along the 130-mile long Lake Champlain. Historically, the area has been visited by such notables as Samuel De Champlain (1609), Ethan Allen (1776), Ben Franklin (1776), and Benedict Arnold (1777). What once operated as a farm, opened as a state park in 1964. The park is so named for the button-like concretions formed by clay deposits found along the shoreline.

Wonderful place big sites , great pool and playground for kids. Good biking paved road. Definitely go again . I know it's a state park but wish they had hook ups.

My husband and I stayed here August 5-7, 2017. It was a really nice and clean. Yes you do have to pay for showers but that's not that big of a deal. If you don't want to pay, don't shower! During the day it is pretty busy due to it also being a go to place for day trippers so don't plan on using the pool. But we would stay again but probably in a different site. We were in a pretty open area and when we rode our bikes around we saw nicer sites nestled more into some wooded areas so I would probably choose one of those sites next time. But well maintained and a nice place to make memories.

The walk to the point is beautiful this time of year. You do have to watch out for ice under the snow.

We had a great time strolling through the park. Nice views and picknick areas overlooking the bay. One of the few sites we have not camped in in Vermont, but plan to bring friends and spend a few days camping, hiking, and biking around the park.
