Because the Adirondacks will always retain a natural element a huge piece of a Lake George Area vacation is experiencing nature. To breathe in the wild, explore a Lake George Area park or nature preserve.

The Lake George Area, nestled in the southern tier of the Adirondack Mountains and speckled with lakes and forests, is a natural wonder. Visitors and residents flock to the parks and nature preserves in the region to breathe in all that nature has to offer. Spend some time in the park for a family picnic lunch or to exercise off those vacation meals. Find a nature preserve in hopes that you’ll come across some wildlife, or go hiking, biking, and birding on the area’s trails.

A family vacation doesn’t need to be all hustle and bustle, and the Lake George Area’s parks and nature preserves are the perfect places for a family to slow down.
