Lake George Escape is a 178-acre camping resort full of lush green meadows, towering trees, a winding river, and three unique camping options. However, what makes this place truly special is the way it brings together parents, their kids, and nature. The campground has created four generations of memories, and many families spend their time simply enjoying the great outdoors - no cell phones required.

From kayaking down the river to playing ball in the park, biking on the paths, and roasting s'mores, there are so many activities at Lake George Escape that you won't even think about technology or the stress of everyday life. Instead, you can focus on creating new memories with the people in your party.

Not One, Not Two, But Three Ways to Camp at Lake George Escape

Whether you'd like to park your RV among the trees, stay in a comfortable cabin rental, or even sleep under the stars in a traditional tent, there is a campsite for you at Lake George Escape. They are open for all three types of camping, each of which provides a unique experience.

Scenic & Waterfront RV Sites

The campground's RV sites will make you feel like you're in the Adirondack wilderness. Some are located near a brook or stream, and others are in the shadow of trees. Most importantly, many offer full hook-ups, while others have water and electricity only. Fire rings are available at campsites, and if you forget your marshmallows, they have you covered at their well-stocked on-site convenience market.

Tent Sites to Suit Any Group

If your family loves going camping the old-fashioned way, then a tent site is the option for you. The campground has multiple tent sites to pick from; there are wooded, waterfront, and even motorcycle-friendly ones within walking distance of the resort's amenities.

Cabin Rentals with Hotel-Style Amenities

Don't own a tent or RV? Want extra comforts and modern conveniences during your stay? Lake George Escape has over 55 private cabin rentals that can each accommodate a group of four to eight guests. They are fully equipped with hotel-style amenities, such as a small kitchen, a bathroom with shower, cable TV, and more.

No Lake? No Problem! Explore the Scenic Schroon River

Although Lake George is the region's most beautiful lake, the Schroon River is one of, if not the most, scenic and cleanest rivers around. Best of all, the river flows right alongside Lake George Escape's property, giving campers easy access to this natural attraction.

On a nice sunny day, you and your family can relax and swim at the sandy beach, try fishing from the shoreline, go tubing down the river, or plan a canoe/kayak adventure. Canoe and kayak rentals are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for a small fee at the Honey Bear Store, or you can bring your own boats. Never tried canoeing or kayaking before? This is a great time to experience it on the stunning Schroon River.

From Pirates Week to Mystery Mayhem, There's a Theme Week for You
