  • Beautiful cove on Lake Champlain. Guided tour in the fall with the leaves changing on a crisp cool day  more »
  • We walked out to the point. We enjoyed the view and our dog enjoyed a swim. On the short hike we saw ravens, waterfowl, and a bald eagle. The pool and pavilion looked inviting.  more »
  • My family has been coming here for years and it is one of our favorite places. Ample spots to settle down for a picnic with a view of the lake. Lots of picnic tables as well as grills are available. There is a great walking trail out to another point with a great view. A playground for the kids and a pool for the family is also there. Campsites for tents and small RVs available, but no full hookups.
  • Amazing Lake Champlain base camp!! The lean-to was amazing for our bikes and gear - pool warm, clean, super nice lifeguards. The camp roads were smooth enough for my son to skateboard every day ;) in town sweet coffee and cinn rolls at Lulu’s and supper at 3 Squares cafe!!
