I could not answer your question with the two links that I wanted to add, so I have copied and pasted some of it (from Vermont dot gov you can search 'Bomoseen' and find many links) Bomoseen State Park: Benson, Castleton, Fair Haven & Hubbardton; Rutland County 3,526 Acres Bomoseen State Park is a large state-owned parcel located in the towns of Castleton, Fair Haven, Hubbardton and Benson. The lands are mostly forested with a mix of hardwoods and softwoods. There are two public campgrounds within the larger Bomoseen State Park – Bomoseen State Park (campground) and Half Moon State Park. Unique Features: There is waterfront on Lake Bomoseen and Black Pond, while Half Moon Pond, Said Pond and Moscow Pond are wholly within the park, and Glen Lake nearly so. There are rich cultural resources within the park, mostly associated with the 19th century slate industry of subsistence agriculture. The mosaic of upland forests and wetlands creates a diverse habitat for wildlife. Recreation Overview: There are public campgrounds on Lake Bomoseen and Half Moon Pond, and a public beach on Lake Bomoseen. Boating and fishing area popular activities on the waters of Bomoseen State Park. There are hiking trails associated with each campground and a trail that joins the two. All lands west of the Scotch Hill and Moscow roads and around Half Moon Pond are open for hunting. The D&H Rail Trail is nearby. The original Bomoseen State Park parcel (365 acres) was donated to the state by Martha Warren in 1959. The property was deeded as a wildlife sanctuary and is reserved from hunting and trapping. In my opinion, Bomoseen is a beautiful lake. This year there is a new addition to what is traveling on the lake, a floating ice cream shop. It is the water version of an ice cream truck. I actually live in Fair Haven. And if you find yourself looking for a good home style meal, try the Wooden Soldier in Fair Haven. You can find it on TA. It is my aunt's place. If you need any other information on the area that you cannot find, please send me a message. I will be happy to help.
