Take to the waters of Lake Champlain – although it’s always a bit cooler than some of the nearby small ponds.   Vermont may be the only landlocked state in New England, but there are still many clean lakes that offer wonderful swimming conditions. The impressive Lake Champlain borders  New York state to the west and offers a selection of beautiful swimming locations. Point au Roche State Park and Cumberland Bay State Park are only two of the wonderful sandy beaches to be found at Lake Champlain. There are public beaches and lake swimming in every region of Vermont.  Find more Vermont Beaches from Vermont Living.
