The Hidden Park That Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Discovered Vermont’s Best Kept Secret

Some of our favorite things about Vermont are the impeccably maintained state parks. They provide incredible hiking, camping and day activities, and while some are more popular than others, there are a few that are still some of the best-kept secrets in VT. With its stunning waters, the Emerald Lake State Park in East Dorset is one hidden gem that you’ll want to visit in 2017.
