Lake Champlain and Adirondack Area Attractions

Come and explore Lake Champlain area attractions, while experiencing the beauty of the Adirondacks.

There is so much to do in the Lake Champlain and Adirondack area of New York State.  The Iroquois Campground & RV Park is the ideal camping base near all of the Lake Champlain’s area attractions. Located in the Town of Peru, NY, we are just a short drive from these many family friendly attractions. We recommend taking a week or two and explore what Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks has to offer you and your family. However, if you are short on time, we think weekend trips are great, too. Let us know how we can help you best explore New York State’s North Country.

If you are looking for ideas, below are some great places to get started:

Ausable Chasm

Explore Ausable Chasm, the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks. Come visit Ausable Chasm for an assortment of adventures you will not find at any other single location in the Adirondacks. Hike, float and/or climb as you go back in time as you experience one of the oldest natural attractions in the United States (Est. 1870). Immerse yourself in a primeval Adirondack forest as you stroll past Rainbow Falls, Elephant’s Head, Column Rock, Hyde’s Cave and the eerie quiet of Mystic Gorge. Descend hundreds of feet to walk on natural stone walkways and gaze upon eons of geologic history etched in stone.
