Chaumont-Bay is a beautiful, secluded area located near the St. Lawrence Seaway, on the east end of Lake Ontario, in what is commonly called the Thousand Islands-Seaway region of the state. The Chaumont-Three Mile Bay area is a "Golden Crescent" shaped body of water that is one of the largest fresh water bays in the world. It also has some of the best fishing in the world where its murky waters provide the perfect habitat for perch, bass, pickerel, pike, lake trout and salmon. The entrance to the bay is provided at Point Peninsula and Pillar Point, where you'll find two of the most prestigious yacht clubs in the country, as well as several local marinas. Chaumont Bay offers swimming, biking, hiking trails and cross country skiing and snowmobiling, as well as boating and fishing. A two-mile trail at Chaumont Barrens leads visitors through a unique landscape with a variety of rare habitats. Although a remote area, Chaumont Bay has motels and rentals along the water and in the village of Chaumont, and area restaurants are excellent. Many special events are held in the area each year, including the Lyme Community Field Days, the Tour de Chaumont Bay Bide Ride, along with several fishing derbies and arts and crafts fairs. In addition, Chaumont Bay is near golf courses, the ferry to Canada, boat access to the St. Lawrence Seaway and 1000 Islands boat tours.
