Molly Stark State Park

Molly Stark State Park is named after the famous wife of General John Stark of the Revolutionary War. The park is located along the “Molly Stark Trail,” Route 9, which bisects southern Vermont.

Originally, the first settlers used the area for farming. During the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built fireplaces and a toilet building, but there is no evidence that this area was used by the public for camping even though local people may have used the land for picnics.

The area was designated and opened as Molly Stark State Park on July 2, 1960. The park has open lawn areas, woods, and Mt. Olga rising to the east where there is an old fire tower with spectacular views. The area is very popular during the fall foliage season for its colors, and also because it is located on one of the more popular travel routes.

Two camping loops consist of 23 tent/trailer sites and 11 lean-to sites. One rest room with showers ($) is located in each loop. There are a play area and a picnic pavilion for large groups. A hiking trail starts from the park and goes up to the Mt. Olga fire tower.

Area Attractions:

Gondola, Mt. Snow; Vermont Historical Society, Norton House Museum, Hermitage Sugar house and Game Bird Farm, 1836 Country Store Village, Maple Grove Honey Museum, Wilmington; Brattleboro Museum and Art Center, Brattleboro; Luman Nelson Wildlife Museum, Marlboro; Bennington Museum, Bennington.
