Event Details

From the very first Native American occupation of this region, people have been using Lake Champlain for sustenance, warfare, commerce, transportation, and now recreation. It lies between the Adirondacks to the west and the Green Mountains to the east. Military control of the lake meant control of the surrounding regions. Later the lake was used for commercial purposes, shipping goods and products north into Canada and south to the Hudson River. Learn more about these key moments in Lake Champlain History.

With such active use of the lake, accidents were inevitable. Boats from every time period in history have been sunk, and not all of them unintentionally. The list of shipwrecks below is by no means exhaustive. These represent only a sampling of the sites we know about in the lake.
