Beautifully maintained trails that give both peeks and majestic views of Lake Champlain. Obviously well enjoyed by fishermen and boaters. This is both a nice place to stop off to stretch your legs in the midst of a long drive, and a destination in and of itself. Great restaurants abound. Lovely Bed and breakfasts should be investigated and enjoyed.

Even though it was too cold and windy for swimming the life guards were there to take care of the area. It faces south so there is great sun when not covered by clouds. The picnic areas and bathrooms are very clean and in great shape. The grill we used was a bit worn out, but it worked fine. I... More

A nice, quiet park with views that rival the ocean. The hiking trails are not strenuous and lead to an incredible outcropping into the lake.

We went as a family in spring; before beach officially opened. There's a very nice playground, reasonable size beach, boat launch area and many trails for walking. Definitely was a pleasant experience in springtime for us.

I love this walk especially with smallish kids. It's not hard or steep, but it's right along the lake and through the woods. I've gone many times with the kids, sometimes taking the dog with us and even been to a wedding on the point. There are different paths to get to the same place. It's a gorgeous walk and... More

Nice park. I prefer the interpretive center. You can find free places to go fishing. The Interpretive center has some nice trails for a pleasant walk as long as you stay on the paths. Saw much poison ivy but the paths are very wide so just stay on the paths.

I love to walk here! Sometimes there is a charge for admission, but at other times of the year this is not the case. Because I walk regularly, this is a great choice, right outside of Plattsburgh. The trails are lovely, many different choices, and the short stroll to the beach through the woods is very pleasant. A small nature... More

Pristine sandy beach and lake view trails make Point Au Roche State Park a delightful family friend and solo experience. Enjoy a day of geocaching or walking along the bay where you can observe turtles and sometimes a beaver lodge is built nearby From time to time the Friends of Pt Au Roche hold a night outing to observe the...

A great place to get away and relax. My family enjoys walking along all the different trails. Take the Long Point for an impressive view!
