Lake George, nicknamed the "Queen of American Lakes," is the largest lake in the Adirondacks. With a length of over 30 miles and a width of only about 3 miles at its widest point, Lake George is a very long, but narrow lake with a maximum depth of 200 feet. Its waters are exceptionally clean and of pristine clarity. Popular lake activities include fishing, boating, swimming, island camping and others. There are three Lake George beaches, including Million Dollar Beach, Shepard's Park Beach and Usher's Park Beach. In addition to the Town of Lake George, there are also many other Adirondack Towns that border the lake, including Diamond Point, Bolton Landing, Hague and Ticonderoga. You don't have to hit the coast to find a relaxing day on the beach. Lake George beaches offer gorgeous views of the lake, surrounded by the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. All beaches listed are directly on Lake George, which has incredibly clean, pristine waters.
