Branbury State Park is located on the eastern shore of Lake Dunmore at the base of Mt. Moosalamoo. The Green Mountain National Forest is its neighbor to the east. Historically, the 69-acre park operated as a farm at the turn of the century, then a guesthouse, summer boy's camp and private beach and picnic area.
Pets are allowed in the day use area, but not on the sandy part of beach or swimming area. Nearby hiking trails to scenic vistas, waterfalls, caves, mountain lakes and streams provide outstanding hiking opportunities. Mountain biking trails are also nearby. There is fishing and boating (Canoe, kayak, rowboat, and pedal boat rentals are available at the park) on Lake Dunmore.
