Half Moon Pond State Park offers peace and tranquility only 20 minutes from civilization. The lodging and recreation options are many. Your evening accommodation options range from camp/RV sites, to lean-tos, to cabins, and your daytime activities from boat rentals, to sunbathing, to hiking. The pond water is no tropical paradise, but it’s swimmable and a nice respite from the heat. And, did we mention the clean bathrooms and showers and extremely friendly park rangers?

We loved this small state park in Vermont, in the Green Mountains. North of Bomoseen State Park, this is a charming alternative. There's no day use area. Half Moon Pond is devoted to the campground. There are some hiking trails, one that does go to Lake Bomoseen SP.
We camped at site 28. Technically, these are tent sites, but we had a popup trailer that fit just fine. We also noticed other small trailers in the campground. There's no hookups (including electricity). Sites 4,6,8,9,12,13,14,16,&17, 25-29 are right on the pond.
They have boat rental. There are modern bathrooms with showers, but at the time we were there, they were nasty.
We have fond memories of our stay here. Nice fishing & boating (no motors).

Amazing. Tranquil. Beautiful. I took my boyfriend for his 40th birthday and we stayed two days. I wish we could have stayed all week. We rented the Butterfly cabin and it was perfect. Right on the water, clean and spacious. The bathrooms were nearby and very clean. The showers were warm and readily available. The hiking trails were peaceful and exactly what we needed. Firewood and ice were available at the trail head. It really was perfect. We will be back for sure!
