Swimming

Jump in and make a splash! The Lake Champlain Region has both private sandy swimming beaches and several sandy public beaches located around the lake, offering opportunities to swim, paddle and soak up the sun. Many of the public beaches and campgrounds have boat launches and rentals, picnic areas and recreation facilities as well.

If you're near Ticonderoga, head to the family oriented Black Point Public Beach — it's known for its "million-dollar view." Sit on the sandy beach and enjoy the spectacular views of historic Rogers Rock and the lake. If you're farther north, consider the Westport Municipal Beach, Noblewood Park in Willsboro, the Lincoln Pond Campground in Elizabethtown or Bulwagga Beach in Port Henry.
