Lake Elmore is 219 acres, and lies northwest of the village and empties into the Lamoille River
through Pond Brook. Elmore Mountain is in the "Hogback Range" and its timber is mostly hardwood. The mountain has an elevation of 2,608 feet.
The park had its beginning in 1936 when the town of Elmore and local citizens made a gift of 30 acres on Lake Elmore to the state of Vermont
. With modest means, a picnic and beach area were created. Today, with more than 700 acres, Elmore State Park has become a popular, developed recreation facility.
