Welcome to the official Island Pond Chamber of Commerce website.

Island Pond, located in the Town of Brighton, is known to be a beautiful and quiet Northeast Kingdom town. Perhaps one of Vermont's best kept secrets, Island Pond's natural beauty consists of pristine Island Pond Lake, the historical district and Bluff Mountain. Together they provide many recreational activities throughout the year.

With miles of trails and wide open spaces, Island Pond has become the Snowmobile Capital of Vermont. Tourists can also enjoy other outdoor activities including fishing, hunting, swimming, hiking, biking, canoeing, horseback riding, cross-country and downhill skiing, and scenic lake cruises. In the fall, the foliage offers spectacular scenery for outdoor enthusiasts. In the winter, there are snowmobile races on Island Pond Lake. One of the town's major annual events is the Fourth of July celebration featuring a parade, music in the park, arts and crafts, vendors, games, fireworks and more. Friday Night Live every Friday night June through August.

Island Pond is famous internationally for being one of the first international railroad junctions in the United States, and our often-photographed railroad station. The town experienced economic growth in 1853 when the St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railroad (the first international railroad), included Brighton as the stop between Portland, Maine and Montreal, Canada.

We Also have a fine school, library, and a wonderful lake side park.
