Island camping on Lake George is about quiet and seclusion. Build a comfortable camp on a small island and live the Original Vacation. Book several neighboring sites and invite family and friends to enjoy the wilderness. Island camping immerses you into the Lake George Area’s Adirondacks.

Lake George’s 387 shoreline campsites on 44 state-owned islands offer an outdoor adventure that is both affordable and exciting. Every island campsite has its own unique flare and provides a distinct experience from other waterfront camping locations in Lake George. Each sun-kissed island hideaway is an opportunity for exploration. Spend your morning perched on the dock, enjoying a hot cup of coffee next to quacking Mallard ducks. Search every nook and cranny of your campsite, or float the day away in revitalizing Lake George. Pass your evening gathered around the fire, roasting marshmallows and sharing stories. Island camping is a wilderness getaway far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. While island campsites are truly secluded, forest rangers are available around the clock to assist anyone who needs help. And since these sites are only accessible by boat, adventure encompasses the entire trip. Need to rent a boat? Our local marinas can get you on the lake and basking in the sun at your campsite in no time.
