Enjoy Your Park in the Dark
Stay up late and experience Emerald Lake State Park beneath the stars. Though Labor Day Weekend, the park naturalist will present a Night Walk on Friday and a Campfire program on Saturday, both at 9 p.m. During the Friday Night Walk, visitors will find out how nocturnal animals live and thrive. We will walk silently like a fox, listen like a deer and understand how owls see. During the Saturday Campfire, silly songs will be sung, traditional animal stories shared, and lots of nutty jokes cracked. Visitors will also be challenged with Vermont trivia. The Night Walk starts by the Nature Center and you can join the Campfire Program by the day use parking lot. Look for the sandwich board sign. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Recommended age is seven and above. All programs are free of charge, but do not include the entrance fee to the park: $3 per adult, $2 per child. Emerald Lake State Park is located at 65 Emerald Lake Lane in North Dorset. For more information, call 802-362-1655.
