The Town of Lake Elmore calls itself 'The Beauty Spot of Vermont." And Elmore State Park is a perfect place to enjoy the scenery and activities in the area. The park had its beginning in 1936 when the town of Elmore and local citizens made a gift of 30 acres on Lake Elmore to the state of Vermont. With modest means, a picnic and beach area were created. Today, with more than 700 acres, Elmore State Park has become a very enjoyable recreation facility. Elmore State Park is staffed by the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps (VYCC), in an educational partnership with the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation.
