Kill Kare State Park is named for Kill Kare, a summer camp for boys, which operated on this site for some fifty years through the mid-1900s. Kill Kare is surrounded on three sides by the sparkling water of Lake Champlain. In the 1840s, the property was part of a farm owned by C.C. Burton. The three-story building in the center of the park was built in the 1870s and operated as a summer resort hotel until about 1900, when the boys' camp was founded.

    "A favorite place to take kids when I worked with them in St. Albans. Tons of room to play games and run around, fly a kite, and of course swim! The restrooms are really nice as well. Quiet, beautiful place to go and get away for a while."
