About The Area

Lake George Lake George

Nestled in the majestic Adirondack Mountains, the Lake George area has been a popular American vacation destination for over 200 years. Rich with both history and natural beauty, the area offers many sights to see and activities to take part in all year round.

Springtime brings moderate temperatures and plentiful sunshine to the area - perfect for taking in the scenic beauty of what the New York Times has called "a Switzerland-like tableau." Warm summer days are perfect for spending time out on the lake. Autumn offers brisk mountain air and incomparable fall foliage. And winter brings plentiful snowfall and optimal temperatures for skiing and other snow sports.

Whether you come for the beaches, boating, skiing or just general sight seeing; the beauty of the Lake George area will not disappoint!

Bolton Landing Bolton Landing

This Adirondack community on the shores of Lake George is the perfect vacation destination for those who want to be near all the great attractions in the Lake George area but remain just a little bit off the beaten path.

The beaches in Bolton Landing (Rogers Memorial Park Beach and Veteran's Park) are beautiful and popular but not as crowded as the Lake George beaches.

The beautiful Sagamore, a Donald Ross designed golf course built in 1928, is located right in Bolton and offers fantastic views of Lake George.

Rent a boat (or launch your own) from one of Bolton Landing's marinas and head off to one of the 172 islands on Lake George for a picnic. Whether you're in the mood for sailing, hiking, skiing, golfing, shopping or just relaxing; Bolton Landing is the place for you!

Boating Boating

The many fine marinas in Bolton Landing can provide you with whatever form of water transportation you need to enjoy your time on the lake. Whether you'd like to be ferried to one of Lake George's many islands for a day of fun in the sun or prefer to rent a boat and stay on the water, you'll find what you need in Bolton Landing.

You can also pilot a jet ski, water ski, go parasailing, wakeboarding or opt for a more leisurely cruise in a pontoon boat.

In addition to lake activities, there are rivers, brooks and bays which can be explored via kayak or canoe also available for rental nearby.

Fishing Fishing

If you like to catch big fish, and we mean BIG fish, then Lake George is the ultimate place to come and drop a line.

The lake is over 220 feet deep in the center which allows for deep water trolling throughout the year for land locked salmon, trout, pickerel, northern pike and muskellunge.

If you have a boat or want to rent one, any marina will charge you a nominal daily or weekly fee to dock and launch your boat. The lake is filled with the biggest, hungriest, meanest large mouth and small mouth bass you ever fished for.

The fishing is good all year round and there are bait shops everywhere including at the marinas. The Outdoor's Man bait shop is down the road from Colonial Court and offers everything you need from live bait, all artificial baits, poles, fishing licenses and excellent advice on where and how to catch the biggest bass. Just ask for Gary...he knows the lake as well as anyone around!  Helpful Fishing Links

Mother nature usually provides plenty of the fluffy white stuff during the winter months but most local area ski locations have excellent snow-making abilities too. You can usually ski in the Lake George area from late November through mid-April.
