On the northeastern edge of New York, overlooking Vermont on Lake Champlain, you’ll find old battlefields that have been converted into an RV campground. This historic site is Crown Point Campground. This fascinating destination is just one hour south of Burlington, VT, ten minutes from Ticonderoga, NY, and an hour north of Lake George.
The rich history of the land on which Crown Point Campground was built dates back to the late 1700s when it was a military fort and battleground. Since then, it's been cleaned up and rebuilt to be the campground we know today. A memorial lighthouse commemorates what stood before.
If you’re into any type of watersports, Crown Point Campground is the place to visit. You can bring the whole family to this RV park, or make it a romantic getaway. Whatever your plan, Crown Point has you covered.
Camping in an RV at Crown Point Campground is the best way to enjoy the area. There are over 60 campsites available, none of which have electrical, water, or sewer hookups. Sites can accommodate campers up to 40 feet in length, and your dog is welcome as long as they're well-behaved and on a leash. Make sure to bring your boat or canoe; the campground's boat launch will cast you off to explore Lake Champlain.
With the beach nearby, campers have full access to the water and all the sports that come go along with it. The campground also offers picnic tables and a playground for the kids. Other amenities at Crown Point Campground include a dump station and hot showers.
Those camping at Crown Point Campground will be spending their time on an old battleground. You can see structures and forts from the 1700s all around the grounds. The most popular and frequently visited monument is the Champlain Memorial Lighthouse. It was built in the 1850s and rebuilt again in the early 1900s and is open to the public. It rests on the edge of the water, and when you get to the top, you can see for miles in any direction.
Fishing at Crown Point Campground is a must for all fishing enthusiasts. Grab your pole and cooler and head down to the beach on Lake Champlain. In designated areas, you can toss a line from the shore or you can use the boat launch and fish from the center of the water. It’s packed full of largemouth bass and smallmouth bass, yellow perch, northern pike, and a few different types of trout. No Crown Point RV camping trip is complete without a relaxing day of fishing. You’ll have your hands (and cooler) full before the day is out.
Lake Champlain is the major draw to Crown Point Campground. On this 281,600-acre body of water, the family will never run out of things to do. Bring your motorboat, canoe, kayak, or sailboat and take to the open water. Water skiing is very popular on the lake, or you can tear up some waves on a jet ski. Or if relaxation and catching some sun is more what you’re into, throw down a towel and soak up some rays on the beach.
If you drive your RV rental just 30 minutes south of the campground, you’ll find the old Revolutionary War base, Fort Ticonderoga. Learn all about the nation’s military heritage and what life was like in colonial America. The 2,000-acre fort also offers boat cruises, tours, demonstrations, exhibits, historic interpretations, and other programs. The trip down to the fort is scenic and goes right alongside the coast.
The city of Crown Point is rich in American history kept alive through museums and relics. Crown Point State Historic Site is a short walk from the RV campground. It once held two army barracks (French and British) from the Revolutionary War. Visitors can now walk freely through both of the ruins. There are also hiking trails nearby. Bring the family, explore the land, and learn all you can about Crown Point’s part in American history.
Midway between Crown Point and Fort Ticonderoga, you’ll find Veterans' Memorial Park. It honors the local men who served and died in the Civil War. This grassy park is dotted with healthy conifer trees and is a nice place to go for a stroll or take the dog for a walk. If you’re there at the right time of year, you could happen upon the annual Strawberry Festival or Classic Car Show.
There are no gas stations on the peninsula, but a short drive to the New York mainland will land you near a few stations. When it’s time for some food, you can cross the bridge into Vermont and eat at a local spot, or head back down the peninsula to the mainland again, where you'll find plenty of eateries up 9N. If your camping trip is taking you back on the road, the nearest major city is Burlington, Vermont, which is an hour’s drive north.
