The best part of this campground is the view of Lake Champlain and Vermont. We stayed here one night in our RV with no hookups. The site was gorgeous and the campground clean.
Small and quiet campground, right at the Lake Champlain Visitor’s Center and bridge which crosses from NY to VT. Many sites have a view of Lake Champlain, as well as this beautiful bridge. There are also some nice picnic spots.
This historic site is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the ruins of 2 fortifications from the colonial wars between the British and French, as well as the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse. We used this site as a quick stop between the Adirondacks and Burlington, VT.
Sites are basic with a picnic table and fire ring. Trash and drinking water are available, as well as flush toilets and hot showers. Bathrooms are kept clean and there is an amazing dishwashing facility. Some sites can accommodate small to medium RV’s, but most are perfect for tents (no tent pads though). All sites are open, sunny but with very little privacy between sites.
Port Henry is the closest town, with everything you made need for your camping trip. The surrounding area is perfect for road biking and kayaking on the lake.
The campsite was nothing special, but was close to where we were and met all our needs
Lots of history here, old forts. On river border of NY & VT. Nice views from the campsites, some places to walk around including a bridge. Lots of room for big RV, good hookups. Pretty quiet. Clean and well cared for.
Walking around you can see sunrises, sunsets, boats, forts, the bridge, history. The fort and its museum are the main attractions but there’s a lot more to do nearby as well. The camp site is a step above basic with actual hot showers and power. Lots of RV travelers but it was pretty quiet during the week in June/July. Not ADK wilderness but we’d still return.
The ruins of Fort Douglas and the bridge were both amazing views. Biking across the bridge was a great workout as well as a tour of the fort. So much history. Went across the bridge for ice cream. Boating was great. Always a pleasure, been multiple times and will be back.
