- 1960 Scout Camp Rd., Ludlow, VT 05149, USA
Most of the park acreage lies on the east side of Town Highway #42. In this area, in and along the banks of Buffalo Brook, one time known as “Gold Brook,” gold was discovered. This was in 1855 and mining operations continued for some 30 years.
The site of Camp Plymouth was at one time thought to have been used as an encampment by soldiers of the Revolutionary War in 1777, while en route from Rindge and Fort Number 4 (Charlestown, New Hampshire) to the Battle of Ticonderoga. It now seems that the encampment was about two miles north of Camp Plymouth. The Boy Scouts used this area until 1984 when it became a state park.
Camp Plymouth State Park is located in the town of Plymouth on the east shore of Echo Lake. The total acreage is 295 acres of which 46 acres comprise the developed portion of the park. The balance (249 acres) contains hiking trails, fishing, hunting and gold panning, but is largely forestry oriented.
There is a group camping area on the south side of Buffalo Brook consisting of six lean-tos, tent sites, pit toilets, and a large field for activities. On the north side of the brook there are a large picnic area, play area, sandy beach, horseshoe pits, concession, and boat rentals. The four rental cottages will be available through Columbus Day. There is a large enclosed picnic shelter including a kitchen for larger groups as well as two smaller open pavilion-style picnic shelters.
