My wife's family camped here way back when in the days when her dad came from Montreal to study for his Masters at the University. Money was scarce, so the family stayed here, and had a great time. It was just as Lori remembered. Lots of trees and forests to play in, a great beach. And the rates are low... More

My husband and I stayed at the North Beach Campground for an extended weekend. From the time that I made my reservation until we left after extending our time, everything was exceptional. Pauline took our reservations and helped with information and encouragement. We had little to no information about our camper and that is where Gary helped us with tons... More

North Beach is on Lake Champlain, a most beautiful spot. I have been there many times. THis past summer, we watched Burlington's 4th of July fireworks. In addition to a nice beach, there is a playground for children with a grassy section and a snackbar. It is conveniently located off the Burlington Bike Path and there is camping available on...

This is a great public park with beachfront access and camping on the property. There's a large playground with well maintained equipment and lots of parking. The view is amazing. What I liked the best, though, is the sand in the water is incredibly soft and the water is only knee deep for several feet off-shore. That makes it a... More

We went to North Beach four years ago and my young kids raved about the cheese fries from the snack bar. It was kind of a running joke in the family that they remembered them so fondly. Well, we went back at ages 49, 48, 16 and almost 12. The girl told us no one was ordering them any more... More

This is Burlington's beach. Very clean facilities, parking is usually available. The beach is free, the parking is not...but it's less than a day on the cape. You can walk easily from downtown Burlington along the bike path (1/2 mile?). Warning...in the spring on those first gorgeous days of warmth...about 5,000 college students skip classes and go to North Beach...they're... More

I stumbled on Burlington's north beach by accident while on the bike path. I rejoiced at the quality of the sand, the security of the entire installation, the vastness of the beach and the parking lot, and especially the view on lake Champlain. The water was reasonably warm, and there were very few visitors. I could not believe they managed... More
