Niquette Bay State Park is a state park in Vermont. There are several different trails within the state park that range from easy to moderate in difficulty. This is a kid-friendly, dog-friendly (on-leash only) state park. The park and accommodation facilities at the ranger station are clean and easily accessible.
The park has only one main way to enter. You pull into the park and must pass the ranger station. It is either there were you can pay the ranger attendant or you can place your fee into the deposit payment box. Once you pay there is ample parking around the ranger station area.
Restrooms are placed throughout the park and they are conveniently spaced. All of the restrooms are rigorously cleaned.
All of the trails within the park are easy to moderate in difficulty. This is a popular area for children and families. You can easily bring little ones to the park and they will be safe and enjoy the experience.
The park is not really stroller accessible in all areas. You can do the Burns Trail with a rugged off-road style stroller. The Ledges, Muhley and Island View Trails are not stroller accessible.
There are ample areas to picnic. The beach has picnic tables right on the sand for you to take a break. There is plenty of spots to go swimming if you pack the gear. There are no changing stations at the beach so be aware of that.
