Excellent spot for some flat trail running and bird watching. Several trail options offer lakeside running with great views across the lake.

This beach has such nice scenery all year round. The woods bordered area is quite pleasing around the beach. Very nice location.

Love Point Au Roche! Especially on clear days. Great place to walk to the dog. Or walk the human! The trail is a nice flat one, and does not require much effort. The back part of the trail goes along the shores of Lake Champlain, and the woods are very well maintained. Please clean up after yourselves, do not litter,... More

This is a nice easy hike that packs a real punch when it comes to natural beauty. Everything from the shaley shore on which you stand to the mountains across the lake is beautiful. We saw very few other people, and the park is dog friendly. The loop around the point is about an hour and a half if you... More

Easy trails and great lake views combined with few visitors and convenient parking make this a great place for an easy hike with little elevation change. This weekend was perfect, hiked a trail and saw only one other group. Sat on a point with great views and not a soul in sight.

There is ample parking and the park looked worth checking out. We were there to go on the Lake but might have been tempted to check it out of we had more time.

Beach was very clean and the swimming was great. The facilities are a bit dated but they were functioning. Good place to spend the day.

This smallish state park has a quaint little beach which has life guards and close to a boat launch. The park entrance fee is $7. No food sold here, but they do have cold showers and a changing area. The beach area was not staffed with lifeguards until 11 AM. The park also has numerous walking trails.

Though there is a day use fee for the beach area, if you park at the nature center and just hike, there is no cost. We were only in the area overnight but walked down to Long Point and back. The trail was very muddy (it's been an unusually wet spring) but we got around the bad parts and enjoyed... More

Discover the past and nature. Remnants of Camp Red Cloud/Redwing including the outdoor chapel and a sleeping cabin. Also search for hints of the Fantasy Kingdom amusement park. Great nature trails and fantastic views of Lake Champlain, The Green and Adirondack Mountains.
