“Champy” or “Champ” is a legendary lake monster said to live in Lake Champlain. There have been over 300 reported sightings of Champy, dating back to at least 1819, which has caused him to become a regional icon. In the late 1800s, legendary showman P.T. Barnum offered a reward to anyone who could bring him the lake monster. The reward remains uncollected.
