The 6th largest in the nation, Lake Champlain draws outdoor recreationalists year round!
Port Henry, with miles of shoreline, is a perfect place to put in. In summer, boats powered by engines, wind and paddles take advantage of the convenient NYS Boat Launch, located at the beautiful setting of Powerhouse Park, and adjacent to the sandy Village beach.
This is a fisherman's paradise, and in winter, the town expands INTO the lake, as entire villages of ice shanties appear offshore, along with skaters and snowmobiles!
Birdwatching? Certainly !
And on shore, there is golf...
One of the oldest golf courses in the country, Moriah Golf & Country Club is open to the public, April November, offering a 9-hole, 2,144 yard course winding through a small valley, with a brook on the lower holes. A good test of golf with a friendly atmosphere. Coctail lounge on premises. More info here.
... and Hiking.
