These Adirondack lakes are ideal for boating. Luckily, launching your boat in the Lake George Area is a fast and easy process. This streamlined approach leads to one thing – you spending more time on the water.
Boating is a Summertime Tradition
When you tow your boat to the Lake George Area you need to get it on the lake. Local marinas make launching your boat fast and easy so you can get to boating, fishing, and swimming. Tow your boat to a public boat launch, back it down the ramp, and your boat is afloat. Most launches have helpful dock attendants available to make sure you don’t damage your boat or anything else during the process. On Lake George, boats must be screened for invasive species before they’re launched. Boats must be launched at state sites so this efficient check can take place. When the days of fun in the sun are over, cruise back to the launch and pull your boat. If you don’t have your own boat, no sweat. There are boat rental marinas all over the Lake George Area ready to get you on the water.
All vessels 18' or longer, or any vessel mechanically propelled by a motor 10 horsepower or greater, must register with the Lake George Park Commission and display a registration decal.
Registration may be purchased annually, for week, or a day at any of the vendors and marinas listed through the Lake George Park Commission.
