In case you haven't heard, our Best of Lake George public opinion survey is open through the end of April...
Crystal clear waters, soft sand and beautiful views - it's no wonder visitors and locals alike LOVE the beaches of Lake George, NY. In the summer months there is nothing quite like taking a dip in the cool lake waters. Choose a beach that has just what you are looking for, from free admission, to on-duty lifeguards, and even shallow water, perfect for small children.
Down the road past the Steamboats on the way to the east side, you'll find the most popular beach, Million Dollar Beach (pictured below). This beach is state run, very clean and family friendly with trained lifeguards on duty. Admission to the beach is "free" but the parking is $10 car and $4 per motorcycle. Million Dollar Beach has the best changing rooms and most "sand" of all the Lake George beaches. Teenagers will prefer Million Dollar Beach, which is packed with people and has a sandy volleyball court and a very nice locker area.
Shepard's Park Beach - Lake George NY
In the heart of the village, behind the fountain and the outdoor stage, you will find the most popular "free" beach... Shepard's Park Beach (pictured below). Located on Canada Street in Lake George, Shepard's Park has restrooms and is centrally located near all the village restaurants and shopping.
Just past Million Dollar Beach on Route 9L is the little known Usher's Park Beach, owned and operated by the Town of Lake George. This very safe, free beach is quieter. It is located down a steep hill (you can ask those who work there with the golf carts to take you up and down if you are loaded with too much beach stuff). This park is my choice for parents with small children who are concerned with safety. It's small enough that you can know where your kids are at all times. There is one lifeguard on duty and the area where you swim is extremely shallow.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Recreational Inflatables such as rafts or inflatable boats are prohibited at Lake George beaches.
