DAR State Park

D.A.R stands for Daughters of the American Revolution and is the namesake of this state park because the organization donated land to create the DAR State Park in 1955.  This area was an earlier area of European colonization in Vermont and remnants of old buildings can be seen in the park.  This park has a campground and swimming area.  The DAR John Strong Mansion Museum is located in the park and Chimney Point State Park is located just a few miles south.
