We camped in lean-tos. The sites were very well maintained as were the entire grounds. The hike to the point was pleasant. Pool was fun for kids. Bathrooms/showers a bit dated.

Beautiful views of Lake Champlain and a nice easy walk for toddlers. There is a nice playground and the restrooms are the nicest I have ever used in a state park.

While on a motorhome trip we needed a sani-dump. Perfect spot while driving through. Were able to use free of charge. I could see kayakers who stayed and apparently had water access. Park was quiet with nice sites.

Button Bay has it all: nature trails, walking trails, camping, swimming in a pool or lake and plenty of space to spread out.
