Lake George Island Camping

How about this for a cheap getaway: Grab your coolers of beer and meat, your women and your kids (depending on whichever you got), and head to Lake George for a weekend of reclusive island camping.

There are 44 state-owned islands in Lake George and on those there are 387 shoreline campsites. Some of these islands are so small that they only have one or two sites. Each of these sites features a place to dock one boat, a fire pit, a pit privy and a picnic table. But sorry, youíre gonna have to leave the pooch at home, as there are no animals allowed. If you like fishing, Lake George is a great spot for you, with trout, pike, bass and salmon all swimming around in the two-story fishery of the lakeís deep waters. You can jet-ski, water ski, go hiking, sail a boat, go for a swim. It is a rustic, peaceful getaway, but itís also very popular, so it is suggested that you make your reservations well in advance. Thereís a Web site you can visit,, to find the maps of the islands. Give a call to 668-9347 for more help or to book your reservation.
