Vermont State Park

blank dot

Fort Dummer State Park, located in the Connecticut River Valley just outside of Brattleboro, Vermont, spans 217 acres of forest land. The park was named after Fort Dummer, the first permanent European settlement in Vermont. Built on the frontier in 1724, it was initially the gateway to the early settlements along the banks of the Connecticut River. The park overlooks the site of Fort Dummer which was flooded when the Vernon Dam was built on the Connecticut River in 1908. This site can be seen from the northernmost scenic vista on the Sunrise Trail. It is now underwater near the lumber company located on the western bank of the river. The park offers a variety of recreational activities including camping, hiking, and wildlife viewing.
