ALBANY — State parks and environmental officials are holding a public meeting to help develop a management plan for the Crown Point Historic Site and campground.

The meeting is being held on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at the Crown Point Historic Site Museum.

The site contains the ruins of Fort St. Frederic and Fort Crown Point. The forts were built during the 18th century and have been designated as National Historic Landmarks. Fort St. Frederic was built by the French and Crown Point by the British and Provincial troops.

The site includes a museum, the Crown Point Pier, and Champlain Memorial Lighthouse. An adjacent state campground managed by the Department of Environmental Conservation has 66 campsites and a boat launch on the shore of Lake Champlain.
