Champ is the name given to a "lake monster" occasionally reported as being seen in North America's Lake Champlain, although the creature's existence has never been verified. Some people believe that Champ is a figment of overeager imaginations, while others believe that perhaps some unknown species of creature does reside deep in the lake. To be on the safe side, the state government of Vermont has put Champ on its Endangered Species List, so that, if an unknown water-animal is present, it will be protected by law.

See also Loch Ness monster, a more famous occasionally-seen, but never-verified, alleged lake-dweller in Scotland.

Champ is also a traditional Irish dish[?] of mashed potatoes and scallions (spring onions).
