On the lake

„On the lake“ is not only a peaceful and beautiful Boondocker‘s Hosting place directly located on the shore of Lake Champlain, but also a place with a host of kindness and support in any matter making your stay comfortable or giving you valuable tips on how to explore the region. I loved being here and I will come back some day.

Everything I Needed

I very much enjoyed my 2 night stay at this location. The hosts were both very nice and helped me get settled in well. Electric and water were easily accessible as well. Thanks again for letting me stay at your lovely spot.

Perfect!

Fabulous location, a bit away from the hosts' house, which allows privacy for all. Loved swimming in the clean lake - always a bonus. Couldn't ask for a better place; thanks so much for sharing!

Excellent Hosts and Beautiful Area

We had an incredible time at the lake. Our hosts were pleasant and accommodating. They even took the time to help me with my hitch when I got there. By the way, the sunsets really are incredible there. Hoping to make it back!

Beautiful area and nice stay!

What a stunning location! We were just there for a quick stay but the host was very helpful and we had a nice chat with him. We spent some time down on the lakeshore - so gorgeous.

Favorite BoondockersWelcome stop yet!

This was by far our favorite BoondockersWelcome location and favorite BoondockersWelcome hosts so far! The property is directly on the Vermont shore of the spectacularly beautiful Lake Champlain; and we hated to leave the hosts who made us feel like we had made new friends!

Awesome midweek stay at On the Lake!

We were booked at a campground in Burlington for the end of the week; our recent registration to boondockers and our positive first experiences made us decide to try another BD site before the campground. This gave us a couple more days of R&R. fjaquish has a great spot on the shore. The site was easy for us to get into, and they offer electricity (and water if needed). Our host was very welcoming and friendly. We used the site as a base to exploring Basin Harbor, Vergennes, Charlotte, and Shelburne. Although we had drizzly weather, when we got back last night the sky cleared for an awesome sunset over the lake. The water and shoreline is a very short walk from the campsite, right behind their house.
Thanks so much fjaquish!

Sunset views & great hosts!

Fjaquish was an incredible host. The directions were clear, the spot was a 5-second walk to the water (amazing sunsets!!), had a 30amp hookup & chill vibes. There's nothing more we could have wanted!

Fabulous

If you have the chance to stay with Fred & June, do it! Gorgeous location with sunset views from their dock on Lake Champlain. RV spot is next to the barn, with electric & wifi. Absolutely perfect.

Super spot!!

Fjaquish were terrific hosts! Great directions to a sweet private spot on the grass under the trees. It was fun visiting them both. I only wish I had time to visit their marina and cafe. Next time!! Thanks for your hospitality.

Simply the Best

A rainy season in the Northeast, and the hosts welcomed us with a flat, dry, back-in location with 30Amps, water and wifi if we needed it. Thank you FJaquish for your generosity and sharing your beautiful location! They found time in their busy schedule to visit with us and chat. Friendly hosts with a good sense of humor, breathtaking views, lots to see and do. They deserve the highest marks, but we hate to say that because they will probably be booked out the next time we would like to visit! Looking forward to some lively conversation with them in the future as a host or guest.

Amazing property & hosts

Great parking spot!! I was able to see lake from my sleeping area. The hosts were above and beyond accommodating. Appreciated the hookups so I could share a movie at night with my son. The view was amazing and we appreciated walking down to the water. Truly an amazing house. Thank you so much for sharing the location with us.

Great spot for a break from campgrounds.

The spot was really great. The hosts provided water and 30 amp power and we were right on the shore of The lake- watched a gorgeous sunset from the bank. Hospitality and location- excellent.

Great Host

Fjaquis were great host, Even Clearing the driveway of snow before we left, We chatted for a little bit, and showed us some of his property, and his RV. Thanks Fred hope to see you both on our travels

Amazing hosts and location

The perfect getaway yet with all the amenities you would need. Gorgeous views and peaceful setting (even though they had a little construction going on which I didn't mind one bit as crews were respectful and didn't intrude). Can't thank fjaquish enough for the local recommendations to hike and dump...including marked up screenshots sent via text which helped when I got turned around and so many campsites were now closed. Hope our paths cross again either on my next time through or in MN. Happy travels!

Great view, great host.

Such a great first stay with Boondockers Welcome! We are new RVers and our host was immensely helpful and knowledgeable. Great location coming from dry camping in the Adirondacks and on our way to visit family nearby in Vermont. Would certainly stay again - thank you so much.

Awesome place with awesome hosts!

The area is simply magical and the property is beautiful! The owner let me walk down to see Lake Champlain and it took my breath away. They also have a level spot, 30 amp, and water if you need it and what a treat! I haven’t been plugged into 30 amp for a long time as I boondock a lot so I truly felt spoiled. The host is friendly and hospitable, they have a lovely dog, and it couldn’t have gone better. Thank you so much for letting me stay and for being part of this community!

Peaceful

A kind, welcoming, and generous host. Easy conversations made us feel at home and with each chat I learned something new about RVing. We left feeling as though we were leaving a friend. The location was ideal, a quiet setting coupled with a beautiful sunset over Lake Champlain, peaceful and relaxing. Thank you for your hospitality.

Couldn’t be any better!

We could write a list of superlatives for our second(!!) stay at On the Lake: Starting with super-fabulous people, site and area. What could be better than sitting on Lake Champlain with the silhouette of the Adirondack Mountains bathed in a pink-sky sunset? Hiking, biking and kayaking punctuate restorative time and cultivating friendship. Thanks again to our stupendous hosts!

Very Helpful and Accommodating

I enjoyed my stay at On The Lake. They have a beautiful vantage point of Lake Champlain and I enjoyed the view and the peacefulness walking along the shoreline. I was late in arriving, just after dark and fjaquish was understanding and helped me set up the electric, along with other helpful offerings. He even offered for me to stay an extra day which I did and told me about a wonderful hike which I did. I highly recommend a stay there and thanks again for your help!

Perfect Maiden Boondocking Welcome Experience

Our stay at On the Lake was perfect with scenic views of the Adirondacks across the lake, including sunset while relaxing on the lakefront. We enjoyed using our inflatable kayak and walks in the neighborhood. GPS led us right there, our site was level and having electricity and water provided was a plus. We enjoyed visiting with our hosts. Don't be surprised if you see us again next year!!

Great host, great spot, would love to come back

We absolutely loved this spot, the views down the path are amazing! The host was very hospitable & accommodating. We planned on arriving early, but had some hiccups along the way which put us there much later than expected. The host was very understanding. Gorgeous spot on Lake Champlain which has crystal clear water. We had fun taking our blow up kayak out on the water. Highly recommend this host & location

Exceptional location and hosts

I think the title says it all, this boondockers welcome location is located directly on Lake Champlain. Stunningly beautiful countryside, surrounded by rolling hills in mountain ranges. The hosts couldn't be more accommodating. fantastic Wi-Fi, flat level parking location, with water and 30 amp hookup on a post. Perfect in every way. One final thank you to the hosts. Casey

A beautiful, quiet spot

Although we did not get to meet our hosts, since they were traveling, they graciously allowed us to stay on their property anyway. They were extremely communicative, responsive and helpful in making sure we got set up properly with everything we needed.
This is the most beautiful property we have ever boondocked at. The house backs up to Lake Champlain, and the view from their backyard (where there is a lovely bench to sit at) is of the Adirondack Mountains.
It is a really lovely place. They allowed us to electricity and water as well.

Weekend on the Lake

Our host was very patient with us and our arrival time. Our spot where we hooked up was very close to the water. Short walk to get there. We used our kayaks both days and had a blast. Would definitely recommend staying here and would love to visit again.

Perfect Stay On Lake Champlain!

We had a wonderful time here. The host's property was beautiful and right across the driveway to Lake Champlain where they had a bench to sit and enjoy the sunset. It was so quiet and peaceful at night. They offered us power and water and WiFi. It was a perfect base for us to attend a graduation and visit family in a nearby town. Great communication and conversation with the hosts. Highly recommended. Staying here during fall foliage would be amazing!

Gorgeous place on the lake

Best stay ever! Level spot with 30 amp connection and very relaxing. Fjaquish was very helpful and concerned about a little problem I had with my RV. Very accommodating and hospitable. I would certainly go back there if I'm in the area again.
Thank you for everything!

A quick stopover

This was just a quick stopover for us as we made our way to the Adirondacks. Our host had a cold, and the weather was chilly, so just a quick hello/goodbye. Nice level spot with 30 amp. Would love to return in warmer weather. Beautiful place by Lake Champlain!

They are a very gracious couple. The site is level and pretty quiet. We were invited to sit with them on their patio and watch the sun go down over the lake and mountains.

Boondocking stay in Vergennes, VT

We felt priviledged to stay with our gracious and friendly hosts. Great location on the east shore of Lake Champlain. Close by is the amazing Fort Ticonderoga we spent an entire day learning about the history of the fort, it's reconstruction, and the really neat story of Sarah Pell and her family - the people who iniitated fort reconstruction.
