Discover The Folklore Of Champ, Vermont’s Own Loch Ness Monster That Reportedly Prowled The Waters Of Lake Champlain

The Champ folklore has captured the imagination of thousands of Vermont residents throughout the years. The folklore goes back to the indigenous Abenaki people, who had legends of mysterious creatures roaming Lake Champlain before Samuel de Champlain arrived. The illustrious career of Champ, in part to the sightings and extrapolation, has grown into the state’s eternal conscience, with an entire market dedicated to a dormant lake monster. Allegedly the lake monster(s?) prowled about in Lake Champlain for centuries, and to this day, much mystery and intrigue surround the myth of Champ.
