What Is Distinctive And Authentic To The Character Of The Region

The majority of the campground was constructed in 1965 and opened to the public in 1966. A view of Valcour Island is available across the lake to the north. On a clear day the silhouette of Garden Island strikes the pose of a battleship. Known locally as "Battleship Island", it is believed that the first major sea battle of the American Revolution was fought at this location.
