Located in Windsor, VT (4 miles from Brownsville)

Flanking 3,144-foot high Mt. Ascutney to the north, south and east, the park is a favorite of many outdoor enthusiasts and sightseers. Mount Ascutney State Park was one of the first Vermont State Parks. It was built between 1935 and 1938 through the efforts of the Civilian Conservation Corps, a Depression-era program aimed at putting young men to work. The original park consisted of the summit road, the stone toilet buildings, campsites 1 - 18 and the ranger’s quarters. The original stonework is all of Ascutney granite.
