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.

This park seems generally clean, welcoming, and well managed. Staff are friendly. For day use there are spots for fishing and boating, and a playground and pool (call ahead to confirm it is open). Also a nice (but small) nature center, and a pavilion for shelter in case of rain. Camping here is varied, but generally consists of open tent sites--unless you've reserved a lean-to or cabin many months in advance. Worth a visit!

Amazing view. Bring your water shoes for the slippery rocks along the shore. Great hike out to the point. Simply incredible panorama of Lake Champlain.

The pool is great for small kids with almost a beach like graduated slope and small fountain to splash in. The water slide is small but perfect for older kids. We hiked out to the point with a 5 year old and 3 year old and they had a great time crawling on the rocks and dipping their toes in the water. One of vermont's best parks.
