I looked up Champlain and NYS in general... if you are a waterfront homeowner on a non-federal lake you generally have the right to put a mooring up to 100ft from your land. If you are on a federally controlled area (Champlain, Long Island Sound, etc.), you have to request permission from US Army Corps of Engineers. See section SL20 of this document on NYS Specific Boating Requirements (a rather interesting document overall) -
