Upon entering the ‘inner’ Mallett’s Bay, immediately to the south in a protected cove is the full-service Champlain Marina, with deep-water slips, all fuels, coin laundry, clean showers and a well stocked ship store. Repairs can be accommodated with a 25-ton lift and 1-ton crane.


Champlain Marina is about 10 miles north of Burlington Mallets Bay is separated from the “Broad Lake” by the Colchester Causway. 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.

Extremely pretentious patrons. If your boat is not worth at least $1 million, don't bother docking here. Website says transients are welcome, but we were not welcomed. Other patrons told us we belonged at the city dock, they claimed it was a private marina, and they concluded by threatening to kill our captain. There is no signage stating that this is a private marina, and nobody approached us to pay a fee; there were no employees in sight. The manager was not helpful, most likely because he did not want to lose the business of his pompous wealthy patrons. You'll find another marina if you know what's good for you.
