Cumberland Bay State Park, on the west shore of Lake Champlain, is very popular with campers and day-users because of its large natural sand beach and picnic grounds with tables and grills. The park has a playground and playing fields. Cross-country runners frequent the park in the fall.
Cumberland Bay has one pavilion. The day use price is $50 and can accommodate up to 50 people. Check availability at ReserveAmerica.com.
The Vehicle Use Fee (VUF) to gain entry into the park is not included with pavilion rentals.
