    Vermont's first state park is very small, offering only a few tent camping sites and a couple of lean-to sites, but it was a perfect stop after a long day of driving. The sunset view of Lake Champlain from the top of the mountain is outstanding, and a relatively easy hike from the campsite. Highly recommended for anyone doing car camping. No RV sites, tents only.
