Once known as Fort Carillon, Fort Ticonderoga is a large 18th century star fort built by the French at a narrows near the southern end of Lake Champlain. Today it’s the only site in America that tells a new story each year through compelling historical interpretation and exhibitions. From living history to behind-the-scenes programs, battle reenactments, workshops, seminars, and seasonal activities, Fort Ticonderoga offers something for every visitor inside this family-friendly attraction.
Dine at America’s Fort Café, rent a canoe, hike the Carillon Battlefield Trail, and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of America’s Fort from Mount Defiance.
