The Town of Lake Elmore calls itself “The Beauty Spot of Vermont.” Located in the southeastern part of Lamoille County, Elmore is mostly forested and agricultural land. Lake Elmore and Elmore Mountain, which rises almost from the lake’s shore, are prominent features of the town.

Lake Elmore is 219 acres, lies northwest of the village, and empties into the Lamoille River through Pond Brook. Elmore Mountain is in the “Worcester Range” and its timber is mostly hardwood. The mountain has an elevation of 2,608 feet.

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 was created. Today, with more than 700 acres, Elmore State Park has become a popular, developed recreation facility.

Two trails lead to the summit of Elmore Mountain (elevation: 2,608 ft). There is a fire tower at the summit, offering great, 360-degree views of the surrounding area.
