About Lowell Lake State Park

See all hotspots at Lowell Lake State Park

Lowell Lake State Park was established in 1977 when the State of Vermont purchased 207 acres from the Estate of Arline Weiss Gardner on the southern end of Lowell Lake. This area included the dam, cemetery, and an informal car-top boat launch.

With assistance from the Vermont Land Trust, 154 acres known as the “White Property” was acquired in 1996. This area included a former summer camp with a rustic lodge and numerous lakeside cabins, two islands, Picnic Island, Annie’s Island, and a residential structure that is being used as a caretaker’s residence. The park property encloses the majority of the lakeshore, including some significant wetland habitat.

A steering committee comprised of community members, the Vermont Land Trust, and staff from the Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation developed a long-term management plan and operating philosophy for Lowell Lake State Park. The plan calls for the rehabilitation of the cabins and lodge, and management of the site that allows the majority of the park to remain in its natural state.

Lowell Lake Trail is a loop approximately 3.5 miles in length, which completely encircles Lowell Lake. Trail highlights include a Revolutionary War-era cemetery, stands of large white pine trees, and scenic views of the lake and wetlands. The trail is located on relatively flat terrain and the hike is of moderate difficulty. The trail is marked with blue paint blazes. The northern portion of the trail follows park service roads on both sides of the lake as well as approximately 1000 feet of Little Pond Road, a town road. Parking for the trail is available at the parking area located near the boat landing off Lowell Lake Road.
