Explore Chazy Lake where you can enjoy a relaxing day of fishing, paddling and swimming at Chazy Lake Beach. The Chazy Lake Boat Launch, located off Route 374, provides easy access for boaters at the northwest end.

  • As warm weather approaches, thoughts turn to heading to the beach or park. However, please be aware that the Chazy Lake Beach and Park will not be open until June 7th this year. No entrance to the property is authorized, walk-in or otherwise, while we make the following improvements:

    • Multi-abilities Playground. With a grant from the State, applied for in 2019, we are finally ready to construct the playground. The equipment has been on site since February, and the build is scheduled.

    • Removal of dead trees and stumps. Ice and wind have been detrimental to many of the trees on the property, making them unsightly and dangerous. Our highway men have generously been devoting time to cutting the dead and broken trees and pulling stumps. Work will continue to fill holes and level the ground.

    • Removing and replacing the pavilion floor. Over the years, the floor has become uneven and cracked, creating a tripping hazard. The highway department has removed the old asphalt floor and a concrete floor will be poured in the next few weeks.

    • Walking Trail. With grants from the Clinton County Health Department, we will be creating a walking trail through the "woodsy" area of the Beach and Park. Our future plans include providing a low-intensity parkours, suitable for all abilities, on the path.

    • As you can imagine, heavy machinery and general construction hazards will be present between now and opening day, so it is necessary for your safety, and to avoid any liability issues for the Town, to keep all unauthorized people out of the area until it is completed. Your understanding is appreciated and we believe it will be worth the wait!
