Maidstone State Park

Added by camprate admin

0 reviews

Maidstone is the most remote of Vermont’s state parks and still retains much of the wilderness character associated with the Northeast Kingdom. Maidstone Lake was created when glacial ice carved out a deep basin in a preexisting valley. When the last glaciers melted 12,000 years ago, a deep, clear, cold lake was formed.

The lake offers good lake trout and salmon fishing and has had some outstanding record catches. Maidstone Lake is one of the few lakes in Vermont where loons have reared their young in recent years. The loon loves the solitude of the northern lakes whose shores are rimmed with spruce-fir shade. Once common in Vermont, the loon is now an endangered species.

Maidstone was designated by the state of Vermont as a state park in 1938. The camp areas were wilderness, but the area around the lodge was a Civilian Conservation Corps camp. The CCC built many sites with fireplaces for camping, the lodge, and a picnic shelter, which are still in use today.

The campground has 45 tent/trailer sites and 37 lean-tos. Three of the four rest rooms include hot showers ($). A sanitary dump station is available, but no hookups. There are a play area, hiking trails, and a swimming beach in both camp areas. A picnic shelter, swimming beach, and two additional rest rooms are also available at the day use area.

Area Attractions: Ethan Allen Furniture, Island Pond; Peaslee’s Host Farm for Consumer Education, Guildhall; Colebrook Fish Hatchery, Colebrook; Historical Holton House Flea Market, Lancaster; Santa’s Village, Jeffersonville.
