New York's Lake George Region

The Lake George region is the crown jewel of the 6-million acre Adirondack Park. Referred to as the “Queen of American Lakes,” Lake George itself is a 32-mile water body decorated with approximately 180 islands and rolling mountains on either side. 

But the Lake George region is so much more than Lake George! 

Our region spans several welcoming communities from Glens Falls and Queensbury to the south all the way up to North Creek, plus many more lakes and rivers. 

With 200+ attractions and 7,000+ rooms, there is no shortage of things to do and places to stay all year. The region is a family-friendly destination with cruise ships, charters, boat rentals, amusement parks, zip lines, ski resorts, rich history and cultural attractions including several museums and historical trails, 200+ miles of trails for hiking and biking, and so much more. Lodging options range from luxury resorts and glamping to primitive camping.

Every year Lake George ranks high on travel website lists of “cleanest” or “most beautiful” bodies of water in the U.S. The environmental protection efforts have helped to keep it that way. Lake George is leading the way with effective environmental protection programs and sustainable tourism. When we think of Lake George, we think of so much more than a lake. We think of all there is to experience here and all the memories yet to make.
