As always, the camp site had plenty of space for three tents (mine is hiding on the right side and the other arrived the next day), the fire pit, and two cars (another late arrival). We could even stretch a clothesline across the site.
This site was directly on the lake (ok, not where the below image depicts, which is nearby, but about 10 ft out from the water as you can see above and gorgeous).
There is a trail around the lake (~1.5 miles) which was ungroomed (we did arrive on the first day they opened the park :) and great fun. Mountain streams ran down from the nearby slopes into the lake.
On the second day, we hiked in the George Aiken Wilderness Area, which is an untouched (no logging, trail grooming, anything) region open to the public. Along the way were, ubiquitous in Vermont, large rocks just sitting in the woods. These are remnants of the last glacial expansion, pushed by the ice across the landscape and left standing.
