“Great Beach”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Beach was very clean and the swimming was great. The facilities are a bit dated but they were functioning. Good place to spend the day.

“Small Hidden State Park”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This smallish state park has a quaint little beach which has life guards and close to a boat launch. The park entrance fee is $7. No food sold here, but they do have cold showers and a changing area. The beach area was not staffed with lifeguards until 11 AM. The park also has numerous walking trails.

“A great place for hiking”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Though there is a day use fee for the beach area, if you park at the nature center and just hike, there is no cost. We were only in the area overnight but walked down to Long Point and back. The trail was very muddy (it's been an unusually wet spring) but we got around the bad parts and enjoyed the walk very much. Loads of wildflowers and birds, beautiful views over Lake Champlain - both NY and Vermont.

“Pt AuRoche Adventures”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Discover the past and nature. Remnants of Camp Red Cloud/Redwing including the outdoor chapel and a sleeping cabin. Also search for hints of the Fantasy Kingdom amusement park. Great nature trails and fantastic views of Lake Champlain, The Green and Adirondack Mountains.

“pretty beach”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

We visited to get photos of Lake Champlain. There are pretty views of the lake with boats and mountains in the background to boot! There is a nice playground and walks. The beach has a lifeguard. We didn't go into the water, but it looks like a nice building for changing clothes is available.
