Vermont State Parks and the Waterbury Reservoir For Fun

It’s a bit off the beaten path, a quarter mile off VT Route 100, but perhaps that is what’s so great about it. The day I visited, there were only a few people there and plenty of solitude, summer breezes and the sound of the water cascading over the dam.

Waterbury Reservoir is also a great place to fish and sometimes there can be quite a few people taking advantage of that along with swimming and wading in the water. There is also a picnic area and places to have a small bonfire near the parking area.

The Waterbury Reservoir is the ninth largest body of water in the state of Vermont. It was created in the 1930’s by the Vermont Civilian Conservation Corps as a flood control project to protect towns and villages along the Winooski River Valley.
