Haviland Cove Beach

This is a small town beach that seems to be very popular with families with children.  There is a medium sized swimming area on the Hudson, with a sand beach and surrounding picnic areas.  There seems to be a kayaking launch as well.  You can see that upstream there is a rope swing on the […]

Shepard Park, Lake George

This park doesn’t seem to be as popular as the nearby Million Dollar Beach, so in some ways it is nicer as it seems like a more low key place to bring young children.  The swimming area is a straight away along the shore so you could do some laps, but there is less of […]

Veterans Memorial Park, Bolton Landing

We were traveling with a dog, so they wouldn’t let us into to this park even though we explained that we  just wanted to take pictures.  So we don’t have the details for this location, but here are the directions and info from their website: Veteran’s Memorial Park Beach About a half mile north of […]

Rogers Memorial Park

This is a cute little town beach on Lake George, with tennis courts and a picnic area.  There is a dock and a nice walkway with a gazebo.  This park is small, but has the same pretty sand beach and turquoise water you’ll find on Lake George.

Northwest Bay Brook

Parking in the parking area that we’ve pinned on the map, and then cross back over Route 9N.  Hop over the guard rail, where there is a trail that is sporadically marked. You’ll go over a steep ridge and then a descent, where you’ll find a 20 ft. or so cascade, with large deep pool. […]

Lake George Million Dollar Beach

There is turquoise water by the shore, and a clear delineation of cobalt blue water as the lake becomes deeper.  There are concessions, bathrooms and  showers, and a large beach with multiple lifeguard stations and swimming areas. […]

Lake George Dog Beach

Coming from downtown Lake George, this little beach is just before Million Dollar beach. Same sand same great views as Million Dollar Beach, but you can bring your (well behaved) dog here.  This beach is right beside the main road, so don’t plan on bringing dogs who aren’t trained to stay beside you.  There is […]

Hearthstone State Campground

This is a really lovely campground, with a medium sized swimming area and a larger sand beach.  They have a unique wood pavilion with arbors and picnic tables.  The beach is on Lake George and has turquoise water.

Hague Town Beach Park

This is a nice town park with a large swimming area and two separate lifeguard stations.  There is a playground and picnic area, and a pretty dock and walkway.  No dogs allowed.

Hague Brook Falls

Park at the signed HAGUE BROOK PUBLIC ACCESS lot that is close to a little bridge. You can walk upstream or carefully walk along the left hand side of the road. The fall will be on the left just a two minute walk. There are trails running along the stream, but the one that goes […]
