The CVNHP offers plenty to do for visitors from near and far. Lake Champlain and Lake George are major summer recreation destinations. The campsites, hiking trails, and scenic vistas of Vermont and New York state forests and parks—including the 6-million acre Adirondack Park—and the Green Mountain National Forest provide opportunities for solitude and reflection. The hunting and fishing opportunities in the region are exceptional. The 6,729-acre Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge is a crown jewel in the thousands of acres of land within the CVNHP set aside as wildlife sanctuaries, which draw birdwatchers and other nature-lovers.

The CVNHP Region

While the LCBP traditionally focuses on the watershed that drains into Lake Champlain, the area of consideration for the CVNHP includes any historic site or community along the “linked navigable waterways” of Lake Champlain, Lake George, the Champlain Canal, and the Upper Hudson River that contains a physical, cultural, or historical resource that represent the CVNHP’s interpretive themes. The Vermont and New York counties within the Partnership include Grand Isle, Franklin, Chittenden, Addison, Rutland, Bennington, Clinton, Essex, Warren, Saratoga and Washington.
