A nice peaceful place for a walk and a picnic. A couple of ruined forts to wander over and explore - would keep any children amused whilst the adults enjoy the wonderful views across the lake to Vermont Or you can walk the new Champlain Bridge which only takes 5-10 mins or so each way depending if you stop for...

Enjoy a restful stop in a place that has seen a lot of history. It's just below the only bridge over Lake Lake Champlain. A short film in the Visitor Center dramatizes the events of the French and Indian War that was fought here, and whets your appetite for a walk among the ruins of two forts--French and British.

If you want a more off the beaten path historic trip, Crown Point State Historic Site is for you. A few remains of the fort still stand. On the shore of Lake Champlain and next to the bridge offers great photo opportunities!

The historic site for the old forts much information. Personally I like the country ski trails or bike trails, where you can see the restored kiln and fort ruins / being restored. Lots of history, great presentation inside the museum. Check out the lighthouse across the road that you can climb

Nice place to walk around just by itself. The museum, forts, and history make it even better. If I lived nearby, I'd come here for picnics and evening walks. The museum was also very interesting and well organized. They gave us some ideas of where else we could walk in the area to see other historic sites.

Crown Point State Historic Site contains the ruins of the French Fort St. Frederic and the British Fort of Crown Point. Neither of these ruins have been renovated. The ruins of Fort St. Frederic are the modest walls one will find down by the water's edge by the bridge while those of Crown Point (which are always pictured) are up... More

Our family stopped here on a weekday (free entrance to the site, but museum closed) and enjoyed wandering about the ruins. A beautiful, quiet, historic spot and well worth a visit.

Nice day trip from Rutland. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the country. Great place to bring a picnic lunch.

Well presented movie on the history of area as well as the original ruins of both the French and English Forts which played important roles in the colonial period. Well informed personel and good exhibitions. Closed during the Winter and early Spring.

No need for big flashy lights here, just a beautiful, quiet place to wander aimlessly around and enjoy a gorgeous day. My boyfriend and I have a campsite in Port Henry, and often visit, just to get out of camp for awhile. The kids love playing hide and seek and skipping rocks in the water too!
