Half Moon State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 September 2012

Half Moon Pond state park (Vermont park of the year), is a quiet; secluded and beautiful state park that has everything you need to have a great vacation or just a quiet weekend. Choose from cabins; lean-to's; pond side camp or a nice open site for your RV (no hook ups though). Reasonable boat rentals; great hiking trails and a cheap supply ($4 pb) of nice dry firewood. We stayed in a lean-to the 3rd week of September so it was incredably quiet and serene yet is only 20 minutes from civilization. Nice clean bathrooms with hot showers. We had a great week.

Half Moon State Park offered camping sites, cabins, boat rentals, fire wood and easily accessible rest rooms. Everything was clean, quiet and beautiful. The folks around us were respectful of the 'quiet' with reading/board games/paddling/hikes on nearby trails. The pond is not ideal for swimming, best used with canoe or kayak. Nearby is Glen Lake - a good swimming place.

Pros
1) Very scenic. Lake, fog etc.
2) Ground condition is excellent and well groomed. Firewood available to buy on-site
3) Hot shower available at 10c/min
4) Clean bathroom
5) Boat rental available and cheap (<$10/hr or $20+ all day)
6) Beach for swimming. Not cold at the end of August.
7) Few mosquitoes or flies. Still plenty of fireflies at night.
8) Dumpster available
9) There are many ponds and lakes around for swimming.

Cons
1) Water is not very clear, but OK for swimming. A lot of lotus.
2) Lack a longer trail. The pond is quite small for serious hiking, but trails are well maintained.


Overall, highly recommended. Ideal for staying with kids.

I love camping in VT state parks. However, I did not like this campground. The pond is shallow and weedy. The campground is not good for bicycling. The amenities are mostlyon the other side of the pond from the camping sites. The bathroom building is new and well maintained.
