Founded by the French Explorer Samuel de Champlain.
Samuel encountered our 110 mile lake
in 1609. Since Colonial times, Lake Champlain waterways have
provided excellent passage for commerce. Forts were built and
battles fought. The War of 1812 was said to have ended the
final invasion of the northern states. Today, Fort Ticonderoga
remains preserved as part of our US heritage.
Lake Champlain has about 80
islands and one of the oldest reefs in the world - The Chazy
Reef. The lake, at its deepest, is approximately 400'
deep and providing some of the best Bass Tournament
in the USA! Ferry crossings run regularly, as
well as rail, and historic lighthouses are notable scenic
trips worth taking. There is so much to explore on the
New York and Vermont sides of this great lake. So much
so, that we are providing our viewers with a
tour of the New
York's Champlain shores.
Lake Champlain offers some of
the best real estate and vacation properties. Boating
is a pleasure;
sail boat regattas memorable; fishing superb
(81 species); and birding (300 species) brings folks back
