Big Falls State Park features a 35-foot-tall waterfall on the Missisquoi River near Troy, Vermont. It is one of the largest undeveloped waterfalls in the state, and the pool below the falls makes for an inviting place to swim or fish in the summer. For much of the year the falls is a beautiful place to soak your feet, have a picnic, and enjoy the views.
While no facilities exist, the open old-growth stands of hemlock and pine are an inviting place to picnic or to set up a primitive tent site. Both sides of the river have 2,400 feet of public land that was donated in 1996 by the Citizens Utilities Company. A massive cliff juts out over the falls, making a great viewing platform.
The area below the falls is open to swimming at your own risk, and the depth varies abruptly, so use caution.
