There's nothing like lunch outside...

In a place with as much scenic beauty as the Lake George Area, it’s hard to justify staying indoors, even for a meal! Picnics are a great way to get outdoors, soak up the sunshine, and explore new parts of the region. Whether it’s a quick summit lunch while hiking, or a leisurely dinner by the lake, there are countless options for Lake George Area picnics!

Head up to Hague and spend some time at Peggy’s Point, part of the Lake George Land Conservancy. Enjoy the beautiful historic property right on the lake which is a perfect place to have an outdoor meal with family and friends.


The most important part of any picnic is the food! With so many local farmers markets it’s easy to pick up local produce and pack yourself a delicious and nutritious meal. Check out our Pinterest board for inspiration. For those who would rather spend more time relaxing and less time cooking, grabbing sandwiches or entrees “to-go” from a local restaurant is a perfect alternative! Some of our favorites are Rock Hill Bakehouse, Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, The Hub, and many more!
