About Waterbury Center State Park
Waterbury Center State Park lies on the easterly trivium of Waterbury Reservoir, a quarter-mile off Route 100. It is an integral recreation resource in Central Vermont and one of the newer park facilities within Mount Mansfield State Forest. The Reservoir is the ninth-largest body of water in the state of Vermont and was created in the 1930s by the CCC as a flood control project to protect towns and villages along the Winooski River Valley. From late spring to early fall the Reservoir is maintained to a surface area of 850 acres and has a maximum depth of 100 feet. To prepare for normal spring snowmelt and runoff, the surface area is reduced to between 415-610 acres throughout the winter. The designed flood control capacity of the Waterbury Reservoir is approximately 9,000,000,000 gallons.
