Campers:  Located on the “Queen” of American Lakes, Lake George, the Lake George Islands offers a unique experience to campers. Lake George Islands campsites are accessible by boat only and are spread out over much of the lake. They are divided into three groups, Glen, Long and Narrow Islands

Each group has its own headquarters to make site registration as convenient as possible if you do not have reservations. After choosing the area you want to camp in, you need to go to a private marina to park and launch. A fee is usually charged for both. Fishing, hiking, bird watching, boating and sailing are included in the many activities campers enjoy. Please note that dogs are prohibited on any of the islands, docks and on vessels moored at docks.

Hours of Operation: Glen Island, Long Island and Narrow Island all open in mid-May and remain open through the Fall foliage season, closing on Columbus Day.
