Both DEC run campsites are pet-friendly, but make sure to come prepared with records of rabies shots! Dogs must remain leashed, reasonably quiet, and out of the day use area.
Similar to the DEC campsites in terms of needing proof of rabies shots and leashes, the Lake George RV Park also features Charlie’s Bark Park for guests and their dogs, a two-acre off-leash park with all the amenities a vacationing pooch could want. Designated large and small dog areas, dog washing station, pet treat vending machine and water fountain, synthetic turf play area, and walking trails are all features of the park.
Located in Warrensburg, Daggett Lake Campsites also require dogs to be leashed (seeing a theme here?) and they even have a dog sitter is available if you’re interested in a day of humans-only fun! Dogs are also allowed at the designated dog beach, but are asked to stay out of the swimming area.
This Brant Lake campsite offers hiking trails, a pool, pond access, and ATV trail systems. Pets are welcome!

Parks and Beaches
Lake George’s famous Dog Beach is the perfect place to relax and cool off with other dogs and their owners. The stretch of beach, which is located between Lake George Steamboat Company and Million Dollar Beach, provides a safe place for pups of all ages to play in one of the world’s most beautiful lakes. The Dog Cabin, located in Lake George Village, runs the beach and is a great place to find all the essentials for mans best friend!
If water isn’t what you’re looking for, Lake George’s Battlefield Park offers an area for dogs to run, play Frisbee, and enjoy the sunshine. Right across from the lake and from Dog Beach, it’s a beautiful place to stretch your dog’s legs (and yours!).
Enjoy a walk along the lake after exploring the village. Dogs are allowed, although swimming should be limited to Dog Beach.
