Lake George Accolades and a Health and Safety Update

We're heading into the weekend with some feel-good news on this Friday.

First, we've been feeling fortunate that the Lake George Area continues to top many high-profile lists featuring some of the most beautiful places on the planet. 

It comes as no surprise to us, but we're a bit biased. With these accolades, you don't have to take our word for it that some of the best camping, lodging, beaches, dining and entertainment are all right here.

It means a lot to us to see the Lake George Area on these lists and get this thoughtful coverage — especially during this challenging time as we continue our responsible recovery. We love sharing our destination with others and hope people find some peace here in the Southern Adirondacks during this difficult time.

Secondly, we're pleased to announce that we have close to 200 Lake George Region/ Southern Adirondacks Health & Safety Pledges as well!

Read more about that here.

We'll soon be listing all the businesses and organizations that took this voluntary pledge to show they're going above and beyond in their safety protocols. 

We've always been in this life together. Now because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our interconnectedness is amplified and our spirit of cooperation is stronger than ever.

Here are some of the recent accolades our destination received:
