There is so much to do in the Lake Champlain and Adirondack Park region of New York State. Iroquois Campground & RV Park is the ideal camping base near all of Lake Champlain’s area attractions. Located in the town of Peru, NY, we are just a short drive from many family friendly attractions. We recommend taking a week or two and explore what Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks has to offer. However, if you are short on time, we think weekend trips are great, too. Let us know how we can help you best explore New York State’s Adirondack Coast.
