Playing In Lake Champlain

Summer awaits

As we bid adieu to the cold and welcome summer, the Lake Champlain Region warms up with a variety of outdoor activities. You can hike along miles of trails, paddle and swim in the lakes, bike along our secenic byways, or visit one of our many historic sites. Start planning your summer outing today!

Summer activities 

Warm weather means lots of activities! In fact, we have several special events and regional traditions that are just waiting for you to partake in. Take a hike, climb a cliff, fish a stream, or lounge on the lake — leave the layers behind and plan your next trip to the Champlain Coast. 

Not one for adventure? How about a little sightseeing? Take in the views from the comfort of your vehicle as you navigate our scenic roads, or grab a cold beverage and gaze across the water from one of our lakeside restaurants.

Discover Lake Champlain’s historic past

A visit to Lake Champlain wouldn't be complete without a stop at its famous historic sites. Some of the most significant battles of the Revolutionary War took place along the lake at the Forts of Ticonderoga and Crown Point, of which both were regional strongholds. Artillery and war-era relics still reside in local museums. During the summer, treasure hunters and explorers can plunge into the depths of Lake Champlain, and scuba diving tours will show you the preserved artifacts leftover from the revolution.
