Lake Champlain, Vermont's Great Lake
Lake Champlain is known as the 6th “great” lake of North America bordered on the east by the beautiful state of Vermont and on the west by the majestic Adirondack Mountains of New York state. Lake Champlain is 127 miles long extending from Canada to the locks in Whitehall, New York and is 10 miles wide between Burlington, VT and Port Kent, NY at its widest point. The Champlain Valley is flanked with the luscious Green Mountains to the east and Lake Champlain to the west.
The lake is full of recreational opportunities! Take a day and go sailing, boating, kayaking, swimming, fishing, ice fishing in the winter, etc. For a more in depth expedition of the Lake’s mysterious waters, try scuba diving expeditions of underwater boat wrecks, provided by The Maritime Museum and Basin Harbor Golf Club and Resort in Ferrisburgh, Another way to enjoy the lake is to take a cruise on the Spirit of Ethan Allen or the Northern Lights while enjoying dinner, music, and/or dancing. Or, just bring your chair and a good book and enjoy the views and soundscape from the many state park beaches dotted along the shoreline. The lake also has its own transportation system, Lake Champlain Transportation (LTC), providing ferry rides across the beautiful lake to and from Vermont and New York.
