Just a little ways east of Montpelier in Groton State Forest is where you’ll find Big Deer State Park. The deer here are of average size, however. What’s above average is the amount of things you’ll have access to if you camp here. In Big Deer alone, there are miles of hiking and multi-purpose trails by which you can explore the 26,000 acre forest. But here’s the real kicker—when you camp at one state park in Vermont, you get free day use at all the others during your stay. And since Big Deer is so close to several other parks, your options literally multiply!

But we’re here to help you narrow down your decision, so heed this advice. If it’s a hot day and you’re looking to cool down, head over to Boulder Beach for wide sandy beaches, or Kettle Pond for a quiet paddle around the water. On the other hand, if stellar hiking is what you seek then New Discovery is where you want to be. Finally, anglers won’t want to miss Vermont’s sole public fly-fishing-only trout pond at Seyon Lodge State Park. And while you’re in the neighborhood, you might as well check out the incredible view from Owl’s Head and the intriguing plants at Peacham Bog. Big Deer is the best place to post up and do it all.
