             Lake Champlain


Lake Champlain is a large body of water bordered to the west and south by New York State, to the east by Vermont and to the north by Quebec,

The lake has been long known to perhaps harbor a lake creature of some sorts that has been affectionally named Champ.

Sightings go as far back as the Abenaqi Indians. The first recorded sighting came from Samuel de Champlain, when he came upon the lake in July 1609, noting "a 20-foot serpent, with a horse-shaped head and body as thick as a keg.". Since then, hundreds of reported sightings have occurred.

Champ was allegedly photographed in 1977 and video taped at least twice.
