Allis State Park

284 Allis SP Road

Allis State Park was established in 1928 as Vermont’s second developed state park. The park is named for Wallace Allis, who willed his Bear Mountain Farm to the State of Vermont to be developed as a campground and recreational area.  It is located on the summit of Bear Hill which provides sweeping views of central Vermont from a lookout tower once used to spot forest fires. On a clear day, Killington, Pico, and Mt Ascutney peaks are visible to the south; Camel's Hump and Mt. Mansfield to the north; Abraham, Lincoln, and Ellen to the west; the White Mountains of New Hampshire to the east.

The property was in the Allis family for several generations as a working farm. The entire hill was open pasture land with excellent views from just about any spot. Mr. Allis allowed the public to enjoy the views from the hill; its popularity led him to leave it to the State. Today, all that remains as evidence of the farm are many stone walls that crisscross the property.

Great place to camp and have a picnic. Not many people take advantage of this. Fire tower for amazing sunsets too

The ranger and the park volunteer are superb in welcoming guest. The park is extremely clean and it is very quiet. You can hear the trees blow in the wind and the comfort is the best I have experienced! This State Park is really a must for anyone seeking to relax and enjoy!
