Kingsland Bay State Park RV & Campground Guide


A day-use park on the shores of Lake Champlain, Kingsland Bay State Park is the sixth-largest natural freshwater lake in the U.S. Lake Champlain is a prominent part of the rich history of Vermont, with a ferry service that has been around for 200 years, a lake-bed collection of 300 shipwrecks and proximity to the Revolutionary War-era Fort Ticonderoga. Lake Champlain was also an important part of the Underground Railroad. Kingsland Bay State Park is conveniently located next to the cities of Burlington and Vergennes and lies next to the Adirondacks region of New York.
