The BSC is located in Burlington's south end on the campus of Hula Lakeside hulalakeside.com. Until the summer of 2018, this pristine piece of waterfront real estate was only accessible to factory employees. With its long sandy beach and expansive shady lawn, the convenience and experience of accessing Lake Champlain couldn't be better. Multiple post and beam storage barns are on site to house an extensive line-up of top-of-the-line equipment for paddlers and windsurfers of all levels. Guests will check in daily with our staff and enjoy access to changing rooms and storage lockers before beginning their day on the beach. Come down to sit in the sand, spread out on the lawn, jump in the lake, catch the sunset, or participate in a daily schedule of activities both on and off the water.
