Lake Champlain is the Adirondack Great Lake -- it is the sixth largest fresh water lake in the United States. It stretches approximately 120 miles from the Canadian border to Whitehall, NY. The lake's width varies from a quarter mile to 12 miles and the maximum depth is about 400 feet! Lake Champlain is one of the country's most beautiful lakes and a popular recreation destination. Fishing, kayaking, canoeing, boating, biking, and hiking are just a few of the activities to enjoy in the area.
The lake is also known for its own "sea creature" -- Champ -- which is similar to the legend of the Loch Ness Monster in Scotland. Sightings of this elusive creature have persisted since the 1600's when Samuel de Champlain explored the area. Bring your camera when you visit the lake -- you may be the next to see Champ!
