This is one of our favorite campgrounds.  They have a massive beach, and absolutely beautiful views of Lake Champlain. There is a large roped swimming area on one side of the beach, which has bright blue water.  Since the lake is so large, it feels like you’re on the ocean.  There is also a second beach around the bend, where you’ll see windsurfers and kite boarders.  This beach has campsites along it, but you can walk around to a more secluded section. It is very shallow for quite ways out, maybe 2-3 ft deep.    The Ausable River empties into Lake Champlain here, and there are some islands and sand bars that children were playing on. No dogs are allowed on the beach, though a lot of people brought them to the area around the Ausable River mouth. It almost feels like this is the “No Rules” side of the beach.

Aside from the beaches, this park also has a marsh and great opportunities for bird watching.
