Cumberland Bay State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Overlooking Lake Champlain, tiny Crab Island, and the south end of Grand Isle, Cumberland Bay State Park might be most popular among New Yorkers seeking a place to bring the family for a summer cookout or a cool dip in the 120-mile-long body of freshwater. During the New Deal period, however, the Civilian Conservation Corps developed the lakefront into a grassy recreation area with numerous campsites. Most of them are well shaded and near one of the four comfort stations, but the park’s proximity to the road doesn’t always make for the most peaceful camping experience. Views, a large swimming area, along with its ease of access from Plattsburgh and even Burlington might outweigh the noise for many, as will bathrooms with soap dispensers, hand dryers, and outlets, and the presence of a small laundromat on site (open 10 a.m.–6 p.m.)."
