Located about four miles above the mouth of Seneca on the North Fork, Champe Rocks are two large rocks named for Sergeant John Campe, who made his home in area. Sergeant Campe was sent by General Washington and Major Lee to kidnap Benedict Arnold, the traitor, from within British lines. The daring plot almost succeeded.
