Crown Point has a rich heritage dating back to the 1750's, and Crown Point Public Campground rests over battlefields and fort locations dating back to 1775. Remnants of structures and sites remain for visitors to view. The Champlain Memorial Lighthouse built in 1858 and rebuilt in 1911-12 is positioned on the campground shore. It can be toured for the appropriate day-use fee and overlooks Lake Champlain. Positioned so that it is majestically overlooking Lake Champlain and neighboring Vermont, the Crown Point bridge looms on the northern shore of the campground and is one of the few bridges connecting New York state and Vermont.
How to get there
Turn off of Rt. 9N onto Rt. 185 (Bridge Rd.) towards the Lake Champlain Bridge at Crown Point. The campground will be on your right as you approach the bridge, visitor center, and historic fort.
Fishing and boating
Power boats, rowboats, canoes, and fishing (for a variety of species including bass, pike, bullhead, and trout). There is a boat launch and fishing pier on site.
The park has campsites, hot showers, a trailer dump station, a recycling center, disabled accessibility, and a boat launching ramp. Campsites are capable of holding any size RV and are blanketed with grass all summer long. There is one on-site lean-to.
There is a campground fee and a day use fee if not camping.
