Wrightsville Reservoir in Middlesex

Just north of Montpelier on Route 12 is Wrightsville Reservoir. Located in the town of Middlesex on the north branch of the Winooski River, the reservoir is open during the summer months for swimming, boating, kayaking and canoeing.

I used to spend countless summer days at the reservoir when I lived in Montpelier in the mid-1990s. But only recently did I discover the road that runs along the reservoir’s dam, which offers a beautiful view to the north (see above photo).

    Hi Angie — Thank you! The reservoir is a very nice place to spend a summer day.

    Sorry Baydog. That was a rough one today.
