“Nice park, but the beach is overrated.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The park is very clean and well maintained, and it looks like they're also adding a modern playground for kids this year. The beach, though, because it is rather small (about 15' deep by maybe 300' wide).

“A true sampling of Lake Champlain.”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Point Au Roche State Park is a family favorite for us. We often moor there while boating because the swimming and beachfront is incredible. Additionally, we love to ride bikes and head out for a run on their many trails. If you live in the area, you should definitely pack a picnic lunch and have a blast at Point Au Roche. The bathrooms are seasonal and they haven't had the snack bar open for several years, but there are still lifeguards on duty for the summer months and plenty of picnic tables and grassy areas to relax on. Doggies welcome too!

“Quiet trails”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I walk the trails several times a week in the morning. Most of the time, I am alone on the trails, on the edge of beautiful Lake Champlain. I love the feeling of having the entire park to myself.

“Plattsburg adventures”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

I love the outdoors and this was a beautiful park. It's close by and worth the few miles to get there.
