This is a wonderful park with long walking trails near and on the water. Markers along the trails tell of the foliage and it is good in all seasons. There are no facilities to speak of. Bring your own lunch and kids and pets.

I really enjoy spending time at Point Au Roche State Park. There is something to do all year round, from cross country skiing and snow shoeing in the winter to walking the nature path and observatory year round to spending the day at the beach in the summer. Point Au Roche State Park has a lovely sand beach for sunning... More

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 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
