The Little Known State Park In Vermont That’ll Be Your New Favorite Summer Destination
One of the best things about Vermont is that even in many of the more popular destinations, you still have your space. That’s right, Vermont is not short on places to get away for some peace and quiet, but we’ve found a spectacular spot that is not too well known so you’re sure to get some rest and relaxation. And the views? They’re absolutely out of this world.
Allis State Park is Vermont’s second developed state park, and it is also one of Vermont’s least known parks. It is located on the summit of Bear Hill.
The stunning property was in the Allis family for several generations and used for farming. Wallace Allis allowed the public to enjoy the views from the top of the hill which was open pasture land with amazing views from just about any spot.
Especially at sunrise! It may be early, but as you can see it's completely worth it.
It was so popular that he willed it to the state of Vermont and can be enjoyed by all. There are still several stone walls that can be found on property from the former farm.
The fire tower provides stunning views, and on a clear day you can see Killington, Pico, and Mt. Ascutney to the south, Camels Hump and Mt. Mansfield to the north, Abraham Ellen and Lincoln to the west and the White Mountains in New Hampshire to the east. Now that’s impressive!
Allis State Park is the only staffed state park which offers free admission for day passes.
Camping is available with remote camping areas and lean tos. There is a great open pavilion, too, which can be rented out. It has electricity, restrooms, grills, fireplaces, picnic tables and can accommodate up to 100 people.
Both the pavilion and fire are easy to get to.
Plan a trip to this beautiful park today! It is located at 284 Allis State Park Road
