Welcome, bienvenue, to the Barton Area, the center of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom.
Crystal Lake State Park, Shadow Lake Beach, and the stunning Willoughby Gap. During the winter months outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy ice-fishing, snowshoeing, skiing and snowmobiling.
The Northeast Kingdom is the heart of Northern Vermont – far away from fast paced city living. It may be easy to get here – Interstate 91 (exit 25 and 26) is just minutes away – but once off the beaten path the N.E.K. enjoys a quieter, more peaceful way of life. Northern Vermont has a long standing tradition of pride in aesthetic beauty. Even shopping is an old world experience as the Kingdom’s landscape is dotted with unique local businesses.
