“Incredible early American fort ruins!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

If you want to visit a state park where you can see unrestored ruins, this is the place to go. They really are remarkable & there is an interesting visitor's center on site. The Samuel De Champlain light house is just across the road & really quite wonderful! If it's open, you can climb to the top to the observation area. Also, you can stop in at the visitor's center at the foot of the bridge for info on area attractions. The bridge is fun to walk across & you can stop in at teh Bridge Restaurant on the other side before walking back. Very pretty views from it! There is also a historic site on that side of the bridge, Chimney Point which is in VT. A not to be missed stop for early American history buffs!

A must see as part of the history of the area. Visitors center explains it well. A long walk to get all around the grounds.

Informal, relaxed, but very informative and interesting. It gave us a different perspective on our history.

“Nice, restful spot.”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is such a beautiful spot to visit. You can bring a lunch and sit and look at Lake Champlain and the Crown Point Bridge. My grandchildren like to walk along the shoreline and look for "things" - they love to go there.

“Ancient and Modern”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

If you are near Crown Point, NY, and/or traveling to the Champlain Bridge to get to Vermont, it is well worth a stop to see the remains of the British and French forts at this spot, and look at the Champlain Bridge which is just over a year old. The juxtaposition of ancient and modern, right by this beautiful lake makes this a truly unique place. And if you want to stay there is a great campground nearby. The entrance is situated right by the Visitor Center near the bridge.
