gorgeous trails to hike around the edges of the lake. It was chilly but stunningly beautiful. we lucked out with perfect weather - but the park is easy to reach, a few choices of parking lots for easy access - and all along the lake...heavenly.

We went there in the fall time. looks like a beautiful place for a hiking! they have a small beach as well. Summer time must be the best time around this area.

We really enjoyed the one trail that we hiked along with family members - the views of Lake Champlain were great and the grandkids loved skipping rocks and climbing some trees!

Went to this park for a restful day out. It was mid week so virtually empty. We hiked a paved trail and saw a few interesting species of wildlife. The beach area on Lake Champlain was clean and seemed ideal for families or people involved in water sports. Park staff kept the public areas well tended and attractive

Our party of four (60+ yrs each) visited the park this past Sunday. It was a beautiful day, having just sprinkled overnight. We walked on the trail that took us to Rocky Point. It was not a difficult "hike" in/out at all. The view at the Point was just gorgeous. I enjoyed stopping along the way to read the signs... More

First, I would start by pointing out that this is Point Au Roche State Park. "Roche" is not plural. As for the park itself, there's much to be smitten with. There are over six miles of coast along Lake Champlain, most of which is rocky and wonderfully "raw." One can also find sandy beaches in the bays, as well as... More

I really looked forward to this park but the first trail I tried was very overgrown and I am highly allergic to poision sumac and just past dodging the sumac there was no way not to have grasses brushing against you and with all the tick warnings, so no thanks. Went to the lower trail head and found a much... More

One of my favorite places in the area. It is a perfect spot for hiking,biking, picnicking,swimming going to the beach. It is good place for X country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter as well. You can go on the trails for hours. The beach on the right side of the main beach is a good spot to bring your... More

Two couples looking to hike and see beautiful views of the lake- this was the place! It's a great place to spend the day, with a beach and volleyball court.
