Community boathouse is a great place to visit. On the water you can catch the Ethan Allen for a water tour, catch the ferry, or just sit and enjoy the waterfront. There are rest room accomodations in the boathouse, also the bike and walking trails...More

Great place for parties, Splash at the Boathouse for a quick bite or dinner, right on the waterfront. Dance and enjoy evening summer breezes off Lake Champlain. Check to see if it's open because bad weather can close it.

There is always so much happening around the Burlington Community Boathouse. It has so much life in the area, between the boaters, sightseers and special events. The view of the Adirondack mountains across the lake is priceless.

Even if you don't own a boat, you can spend time gazing at the lake and the beautiful Adirondacks and get a snack at the snack bar. OR have a beverage or meal at Splash, the restuarant located at the boathouse

One of the main highlights of living in Burlington for me is being able to walk here. During the warmer weather I love to go really early and sit at the end of the dock. You can watch the cloud and enjoy the Adirondacks across...More

Cold and nippy but bright and invigorating for a walk down from Battery Park the back way to the Waterfront. Heard an early morning bugle call from the Coast Guard buildings. Some folks were walking dogs. The waterfront park and the boathouse were glistening with...More

Always love it. Took off in a small boat for NY state this July. Small marina, but accessible. Dining and drinking available. Frankly Burlington deserves a larger, more upscale water front, but it wasn't meant to be so I accept this alternative. Lake Champlain is...More
