Summer Recreation

The Plattsburgh - Lake Champlain Region is the kind of place adventure seekers dream about. Situated on the shores of 121-mile Lake Champlain and close to the Adirondack Mountains, the Plattsburgh Region is celebrated for the wealth of recreational opportunities the unique landscape provides.


This summer, visit the Adirondack Coast and explore the region's diverse offerings-from fishing on Lake Champlain, to boating, canoeing and kayaking, to hiking in the Adirondack Mountains, to golfing on the Plattsburgh golf courses, to simply sitting on a sandy beach, there is no shortage of things to do.


Not surprisingly, Lake Champlain is a huge draw for the area and water adventures abound. Rent a boat, take a guided tour or launch a canoe or kayak from one of the area's marinas and boat launches. In the Plattsburgh Region, you can sit in a waterfront park, read on a sandy beach, swim, paddle or fish.


For cycling enthusiasts, the region offers some of the best biking in North America. The area features a mix of quiet roads and scenic trails as well as the Lake Champlain Bikeways- a 1,300 network of bike routes, in addition to the 363-mile principal route around the entire Lake and along the Richelieu River to Chambly, Québec.

Once you've discovered all that the Plattsburgh-Lake Champlain Region has to offer, head to the High Peaks Region for endless Adirondack recreation. You can climb one of the 46 High Peaks, explore the region on 2 wheels for a biking adventure, or go camping, paddling and rock climbing, among other activities.
