Prouty Beach & Campground
Prouty Beach is a 36 acre park with breathtaking views of Lake Memphremagog and Downtown Newport. The facility hosts over 75 campsites and amenities including tennis courts, playground, disc golf course, basketball court, shuffleboard and horseshoe pits. Located conveniently off I-91 across from North Country Union High School, the park is a local favorite for day use and over-night stays. The lower beach building houses boat and bike rentals and access to bathrooms and changing facilities for the waterfront. Prouty also provides parking areas for hiking on the Newport-Beebe Bike Path and nearby fishing and boat access inside the park.
RV and Tent Site Rentals
With full hook-ups and sites large enough to house campers up to 54', Prouty Beach is a favorite seasonal destination for many travelers summer after summer. Each site includes a picnic table, water, electricity and a personal fire pit. Free showers, coin operated laundry, BBQ grills and a boat pump-out station are also available along with many park amenities including beachfront, playground and non-motorized boat rentals.
Whether you've booked an overnight stay or you're a day visitor to the park, the Prouty Campground store has a complete variety of summertime necessities. From sunscreen to s'mores, bug spray to swim floaties the ticket booth carries many convenience items and snacks. Stop by for an ice-cream cone, and pick up your Prouty Beach t-shirt or baseball cap as a vacation souvenir to remember your trip.
Disc Golf Course
A nine-hole disc golf course was added to the park in 2012. The course features a diverse "frolfling" experience, taking players from forests of white pines to fields, through birch woods, along the beach and back. Golfers can pick up a scorecard or rent discs from the ticket booth during open hours in the summer. View course map and scorecard.
Newport-Beebe Bike Path
Stretching from Downtown Newport to Canada, the Beebe Spur rail trail is an out-and-back ride through some of Vermont's most scenic areas. The path borders the eastern shore of Lake Memphremagog and stretches about 5.3 miles from beginning to end. Suitable for all abilities, the part gravel, part pavement trail is open all summer to bikers, walkers and runners. During winter, parts of the trail are maintained for cross country ski use by the Memphremagog Ski Touring Foundation. View trail map.
