Season passes will be available for purchase online, over the phone, or at the Recreation Office at the end of March. Passes purchased before the official start date of the season can be picked up at Indian Brook Park at the front entrance during the season with proof of purchase (printed or electronic). Gate staff will issue your purchased pass to you upon arrival.

You still need to have your pass with you and show it at the gate.
Dogs must be on a leash in the parking lots and driveways, picnic area adjacent to the dam and at the water in front of these areas. Dogs are only allowed to be off their leash beginning at the trail head past the parking lot on the east side of the reservoir and beyond the trail head at the lower parking lot on the south end of the reservoir. Dogs must respond to voice commands, cannot chase the wildlife in the park, and must be under the owner's complete supervision and control at all times.
At each trail head we have provided dog mitts and trash receptacles. Please be a responsible dog owner/caretaker; you must pick up after your dog and dispose of properly.
If you have more questions please call the Parks and Recreation Department at 802-878-1376 Monday through Friday, 8 am-4 pm.
