About Lake Champlain
Western Vermont

Lake Champlain divides western Vermont from northern New York and extends into Canada. Lake Champlain is the nation’s sixth-largest lake, popular for boating, ice fishing, and exploring nearby towns and parks.

Fun on the Lake

Lake Champlain is 120 miles long and 12 miles at its widest point. There are 587 miles of shoreline and 71 islands along the way. The average depth of the water is 64 feet, but the deepest point is 400 feet.

With every season, the landscape transforms and creates a character of its own. Summer in the Adirondacks is an amazing time to get the most out of sunny days. You can have fun hiking, swimming, paddling, fishing, and much more here!

The CATS trail system includes more than 40 miles of trail, many of which are beginner routes to stunning vistas of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack High Peaks.

Lake Champlain has over 90 species of fish and is considered one of the best bass fishing lakes in the northeast. The most common species of fish found here are northern pike, largemouth bass, black crappie, brown bullhead, bluegill, rock bass, and yellow perch. Trout and salmon can also be found on this lake.

Bird Watching Paradise

There are 318 species of birds in Vermont that live on Lake Champlain. Of particular interest is the Common Tern.

There have been successful efforts made to protect the habitat of this bird. Common Tern nesting pairs rose from 50 in 1988 to 275 in 2013.
