Champlain Marina is about 10 miles north of Burlington Mallets Bay is separated from the “Broad Lake” by the Colchester Causeway. The causeway is an old abandoned railroad bed built on piles of large rocks. The passage opening was once a swing bridge that has been removed. There are lots of weeds along the east side of the causeway. When approaching the passage from the Broad Lake in late summer, the weeds are grown and close to the water surface. When approaching from the south, be sure to know where Colchester Reef is located. They say the reef is littered with pieces of propellers.

Had a really nice stay visiting friends. Very nice dock staff with a small marina store. Floating docks are very nice and no issues with electrical. Definitely would return if we ever find ourselves on Lake Champlain.

Marina Response:
Glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope you make it back to the lake someday.

Amazingly friendly. We were low on fuel and made what was going to be a quick stop, but decided to stay the evening. Ended up staying a couple more nights to reprovision because the access to a store was easier than planned.

Thank you for the kind words, glad we were able to accommodate!

Dockhands are always very friendly and are knowledgeable boaters! Always come here for gas, prices are reasonable and free pumpouts are a plus. Bathrooms are always clean!
