One of the best beaches on Lake Champlain: the water is very clean, there is a very nice playground for the kids, you can rent kayaks or paddle boards. $8 per car: not too expensive for such a lovely place.

We parked here as our starting point for a bike ride on the rail trail. $8 to park, but it was worth it, we put out our beach chairs on a beautifully clean sand beach and headed out on our bikes. When we returned we used the changing rooms and they were spotless. This beach/campground is well maintained and a... More

This beach is beautiful if you would like to spend some time near the lake. It is clean and well kept. The water is very fun to swim in and it would be great for families to have fun.

Was looking for a good place to get down by the lake during a family trip to Burlington. Discovered at beautifully maintained beach and park with plenty of facilities including rest rooms, snack bar, pavilion, picnic tables, grills and boat rentals. Lifeguards are present and actively patroling. Dogs are not allowed on the beach or in the lake. There is... More

Clean bathrooms and changing rooms, life gard, snack bar. Close to town by foot or bike. Part of the beach is more natural the other is more like a park. Enjoy !

My family and I had a lovely afternoon at this park. We paid $8 for the car to enter as non residents and enjoyed easy parking, a lovely beach with warm water and a lifeguard. There were also restrooms and a snack bar. The sand was so hot we were glad to have brought our own chairs and a blanket.... More

Parking, entry fee, concessions, toilettes, bike path, walk to town, go far left or right on beach for a more chill attitude. NO SMOKING, Rent a kayak and enjoy the day. Great Swimming, Lifeguard. Fishing walk south.

Great beach located right off the bike path in Burlington VT. You can bike or walk in for free or pay a small fee to park. There is a pavilion with crappy beach snack food if you want and bathrooms. It can get a little college kid-y for my tastes so I tend to go to Oakledge Instead but it... More

This park has grass areas, benches, picnic tables, grills and a great beach on the lake. Great views of the mountains. Simple, yet fun.
