Where to Go

These two ponds are separated by less than a mile. There is a Vermont Fish & Wildlife access area at each pond. At Kent Pond, the best place to fish is along the dam breast, where you will find a shorefishing platform.

Gifford Woods State Park is just across the road from Kent Pond and offers camping and hiking opportunities.
