Lake Champlain comprises part of the border between New York and Vermont, a long thin lake that stretches north into the Richlieu River in Quebec, Canada. There are over 70 islands in Lake Champlain, and its edges are full of beautiful state parks, like Kamp Kill Kare State Park and North Hero State Park. Those fishing in Lake Champlain can test their luck to find walleye, pike, salmon, bass, and more. The lake is also home to Champ, a horned serpent who lives in the waters of Lake Champlain according to legend. Champ is purported to be harmless, and easily scared off by boats and humans, so thereÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs no reason to fear this lakeÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂs beast.
