Green River Reservoir
Green River Reservoir, open daily from 10:00 a.m.-official sunset, is not the typical Vermont State Park. The undeveloped setting on 5,503 acres is a designated “quiet” lake, with human-powered watercraft only (bring your own canoe, rowboats, kayaks), 27 remote tent sites, fishing, swimming and great wildlife sightings including common loons. This unique spot offers high-quality outdoor experiences for visitors.
