Burton Island is a 253-acre park off the southwestern tip of St. Albans Point in Lake Champlains ‘Inland Sea’. The park is accessible only by boat, with the states passenger ferry making the 10-minute trip from Kill Kare State Park.
There are 17 tent sites and 26 lean-to sites plus 15 boat moorings and a 100-slip marina with Wi-Fi (wireless internet) connection, dockside electricity, fuel service, and a marine holding-tank pumpout facility. This, with ferry service to the island (no vehicles) from Kill Kare, makes Burton Island one of the most unique parks in Vermont. Rest rooms have running water and hot showers ($). There are 3 miles of shoreline, hiking trails, a nature center/museum, park store and food service, rowboat and canoe rentals, and places to swim and picnic.
