The Lake Champlain Monster, otherwise known affectionately as “Champ”, is said to be a freshwater-dwelling plesiosaur living in Lake Champlain. It is said to be medium-sized and have the ability to echolocate. On the arks, there have been sightings of plesiosaurs in lakes. Not the large elasmosaurs of the oceans, but a much smaller plesiosaur patrolling the island's freshwater river systems. While it could be any sort of actual plesiosaur, it has been affectionately named as such by residents, and its elusive nature gives the creature some credibility. While it could prove an agile water mount, it would likely be stuck in whatever body of water it was found and tamed in, unless one could somehow figure out a way of moving it to open water or the ocean; or unless the body of water connected to the open sea.

- Champ is perhaps the most notable lake monster excluding the Loch Ness Monster.
- Champ's design is inspired by the plesiosaurus from Dino Stalker.
