Lake Champlain is the largest mountain lake and the sixth largest fresh water lake in the United States.
A Federal waterway, it is located between upper New York State (The Adirondacks) and Vermont.
It connects in the South via the Champlain Canal to the Hudson River, Albany and New York City.

The Lake actually flows north through the Chambly Canal to the Richeleau River in Quebec,
then by St. Lawrence River to the Atlantic, connecting to Montreal and the Great Lakes.

It is 120 miles long; 12 miles across at the widest; 435 square miles; 587 miles of shoreline.
Average surface height is 95 feet above sea level. Chart depths are on low lake level of 93 ft.
Just north of Westport at Split Rock it is about 400 ft deep (307 below sea level).
The lowest spot below sea level in the United States!
(Death Valley is only 292 feet below; NY Finger Lakes are deeper but higher above sea level.)
