Learn About the Glen Island Group

Traveling north from the Long Island Group brings campers to the Glen Island Group. These islands are in the central part of Lake George between Bolton Landing and Fort Ann. Most sites on these islands allow up to six people, but some are limited to two or four people per site, depending on the size of the island.

The Glen Island Ranger Station is on Glen Island, so it's only accessible by boat. You can check-in at the ranger station or at the DEC's office at Norowal Marina on Sagamore Road in Bolton Landing. Glen Island also features a convenience store where you can stock up on supplies.

NOTE: To reach your island campsite, you will need to go to a private marina on Lake George to park and launch your boat. Some businesses offer water taxi services to the islands, but you will need to find overnight parking for your vehicle.

To make reservations for an island campsite, please go to Reserve America.

We had a horrible experience today. There is no state launch or overnight parking provided like many other island campground locations in the ADK. The website takes you to Google Maps which lead us on a 4 hours drive that ended with a 12 mile stretch of windy dirt road ending at a dead end. We checked numourous websites and there is no clear indication that the use of a public marina was required to launch. By the time we got to the marinas the lots were full and there was no place to park overnight and launch. The ranger were no help. We had no choice but to turn around and go home as all othere campsites were booked. We did not recieve a refund. Our plans of canoe camping out to an island were replaced with a disapointing 4 hour drive home.
