Planning some beach time while visiting Lake George? You can now swim, tan, and enjoy summer fun for longer, as the DEC has extended the hours at Million Dollar Beach.
Million Dollar Beach will be open for two additional hours each day this summer, the DEC announced on Wednesday.
The beach is located at the southern end of Lake George at 139 Beach Road and is now open 9am to 7pm every day through Labor Day. There is a $10 per car fee to park in the beach parking lot, and a $6 car fee after 5pm. If you can walk to the beach, it’s free.
The beach now has a restored parking lot, better traffic flow, a refurbished and relocated boat launch, and Beach Road has been repaved. The new boat launch involves a boat inspection and boat wash station to prevent the spread of invasive species.
Million Dollar Beach is the largest beach in Lake George, with lifeguards, showers, a volleyball court, and picnic areas.
