Little River State Park is located near Waterbury, Vermont and a short drive from both Stowe and Burlington. It is on a large lake and offers boat rentals, boat ramps, a beach, and miles of trails. The park is located where a town once stood before it was flooded in the 1930's. There are still some structures from that time period in the park.
The park has a number of campsites as well as cabin rentals. We rented a cabin and we're glad we did. The cabin was clean and had a bunk bed (with mattresses) and a futon which folded out into a queen size bed. The cabin also had a small table with two chairs, a light and four electrical outlets, a smoke detector and fire extinguisher, and a combination lock for the front door. Outside it had a covered porch with picnic table and a fire pit. There was also a 30 amp RV outlet. We brought our own sheets, pillows and sleeping bags.
Our cabin was conveniently located near park restrooms and showers. These were very clean, fully functional bathrooms. The showers were coin operated (quarters only) and also clean. We observed park staff cleaning the facilities while we were there.
We stayed two nights at the cabin and were very pleased. The park was quiet and despite other nearby sites being occupied, we barely heard our neighbors. We also didn't notice any mosquitoes while we were there.
Due to weather and time contraints, we didn't have the opportunity to hike, swim or rent boats while here. We did go for a short walk out to the Waterbury Dam one night (trail map

|The park supplies sheets; however, they were in rough shape. The mattresses themselves were in good condition. The futon folds out into a queen sized bed. |

|I don't usually take pictures of bathrooms, but this was the nicest campground bathroom I've ever seen. |
