Beautiful Lakes in Vermont

To visit in the fall

Vermont may be a landlocked state, but its beautiful and varied lakes make up for its lack of ocean shores.

Lake Whitingham

Also known as the Harriman Reservoir, this man-made Vermont lake is undeveloped and surrounded by the Green Mountains.

Lake Shaftsbury

This tiny lake is the centerpiece of Lake Shaftsbury State Park. Be sure to hike the mile-long trail around the lake for gorgeous fall views.

Lake Champlain

This massive Vermont Lake is 107 miles long and 14 miles wide at its widest point, making this New England's largest lake.

Grout Pond

In early October, this is one of the best spots to hike with a camera, as the fall foliage reflecting in the water is incomparable.

Adams Reservoir in Woodford State Park

Woodford State Park maintains the small pond known as Adams Reservoir, as well as a busy waterfront campground and an easy hiking trail. 

Lake Willoughby

Lake Willoughby was carved by glaciers thousands of years ago. Mount Hor and Mount Pisgah rise up on either side of it, giving it appearance of a Norwegian fjord.
