Lake Shaftsbury State Park is on an 84-acre parcel surrounding the small but picturesque Lake Shaftsbury. The area operated as a private campground/cabin resort before it became a state park in 1974. It has become a popular park facility in southwestern Vermont.

Lake Shaftsbury operates a group camping area with clusters of lean-tos (15) available throughout the year for scouts, church groups, and other organizations. Pit toilet facilities are available. There is also a developed beach, play area, and picnic area. There is an open picnic shelter/pavilion available for large group gatherings. The snack bar concession has rental rowboats, paddle boats, and canoes. The “Healing Springs Nature Trail” around the lake is also a popular spot.

Area Attractions: Bennington Monument and Museum, Bennington; Hildene and Equinox Hotel, Manchester; Norman Rockwell Museum, Arlington; Southern Vermont Arts Center, Manchester.
