Sand Bar State Park is a natural sandbar created by sediment from the Lamoille Valley swept downstream by the Lamoille River. Shallow warm water and sandy beaches are popular for swimming — especially with kids. The park features canoe and kayak rentals, covered picnic shelters and BBQ grills. Don’t forget to admire the Stone Bath House, built in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps. At the south and east ends of the park are marshland, part of the 1000-acre Sandbar Wildlife Refuge. Spring and fall bring migratory birds and among the year-round residents are beaver, muskrats, frogs and turtles. The park is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekends. There is a day use fee to enter but if you plan on visiting other Vermont State Parks, consider a seasonal vehicle pass or punch card which is valid for 10 visits and never expires. Though there are no services open in winter, the park is a big draw for snow-kiting, where kites are used to glide across the snow on skis or snowboards and trails can be used for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing. There is no charge to use the park in winter.
