Somerset Reservoir, VT

Connect with nature at Somerset Reservoir, a 1,600-acre lake in the southern part of the state, at the town of Somerset. Pretty much anything you like to do outdoors is available here in a pristine, New England setting. Hiking, swimming, kayaking, sailing, boating and fishing are just some of the activities awaiting visitors. Smallmouth bass are top choice her for most anglers, but fishing is also good for trout, sunfish perch and pickerel. A boating access for portage (not a boat ramp) is located on the south shore near the parking area. Motor boats are restricted to speeds of 10 miles per hour or less. The sixteen miles of undeveloped shoreline are wrapped by the Green Mountain National Forest. Solitude, beauty and great fishing make this a worthwhile trek over the ten mile dirt access road.
