It's important for beachgoers to note that beaches throughout the Lake George Region, Adirondacks, and Capital District are operating at reduced capacities to further prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you arrive at a beach and capacity has already been reached, you will be unable to enter. Plan ahead, arrive early, and always have a backup plan or two in case you get closed out of your first choice of beach.

[music] It is Lake George, so it's just a matter of time before you head to the beach. But, which one? Down the road past the steamboat, just out of the way of the hustle in the village, you'll find the very popular Million Dollar Beach.

This beach is state run, very clean, and family-friendly, with trained lifeguards on duty. Admission to the beach is free, but there is a small fee for parking in the lot across the street. Million Dollar Beach has great changing rooms, lockers, and the most sand of all the Lake George beaches. Teenagers will love Million Dollar Beach, which is always packed with people, plenty of room for activities, and has a sandy volleyball court.

Million Dollar Beach is the perfect beach for spending the day at the lake. Bring the cooler and lunch, find your spot on the beach, and take in the fantastic views. In the heart of the village, behind the fountain and the outdoor stage, you will find Shepard's Park Beach, located on Canada Street in Lake George.

Shepard's Park has restrooms and is centrally located near all the village restaurants and shopping. It's easy walking distance from any of the village parking locations. Shepard's Park Beach has a pier to the south side, that is great for fabulous views and photos . Because of its location, Shepard's Park Beach is also the back drop for a lot of the activities that take place throughout the summer and fall, concerts, festivals, and the fabulous Thursday fireworks show.

Just past Million Dollar Beach on Route 9L is the little known, Usher's Park Beach. This very safe, free beach is quieter and much smaller than Shepard's Park and Million Dollar Beach. It is located down a steep hill, directly from the parking lot.

This park is the 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. On the top of the hill, there is a fantastic playground for children of all ages, and a very large picnic area for families.
