At the upper end of the reservoir, the Ottauquechee River flows through the sheer-faced 165-ft deep Quechee Gorge, one of the outstanding natural spectacles in the state. An overlook area and a state-managed campground as well as a new Visitor Center opening in the summer of 2005 are nearby. At North Hartland Lake, there is boating on the 215-acre lake, picnicking in a wooded picnic area, grills, playground, play field, horseshoe pits, volleyball nets, nature trail and a small beach offering swimming. There are three picnic shelters at North Hartland Lake that can be reserved for a group event for a nominal fee. The trash policy for the park is carry in/carry out.
