If you’re searching for a beautiful beach, Bolton Landing on Lake George is the perfect place for a summer vacation. There are two public beaches located near the shops and restaurants of Bolton Landing.
The beach at Rogers Memorial Park, located on the southern end of Bolton Landing, is the older of the two public beaches in town. It has a large, sloping beach full of clean sand that leads down to a sizable swimming area. Lifeguards overlook the marked swimming zone to make sure everyone is safe. A dock off the beach allows swimmers to cannonball into the deep end of the swimming zone.
Rogers has a brand new pier next to the beach with educational signage and public docks. Shelving Rock, Dome Island, and the Sagamore Resort are directly in front of the pier, making it one of the most photogenic spots in all of Bolton Landing.
Public tennis courts, a sprawling lawn, plenty of parking, public restrooms, and convenient access to nearby delis, restaurants, shops, and the Bolton Visitors Center make Rogers Memorial a great location to take a dip. Rogers is a recommended place to watch Bolton Landing’s annual Fourth of July fireworks show.
The beach at Veterans Memorial Park is located on the northern end of Bolton Landing on Lake George. Its beach is long and flat, with plenty of room to spread your towel or build a sand castle. The roped-in swimming area allows for swimming in both shallow and deep water, and it’s protected by lifeguards throughout the summer. If you’re not much of a swimmer you can just lie in the sand and take in the views of Tongue Mountain.
Vets Beach, as the locals call it, has activities to last the entire day. Along with the beach, guests can take advantage of a volleyball court, a basketball court, a playground, charcoal grills, public docks, and a kayak launch. The beach is a short walk from the Stewart’s Shop in Bolton Landing, as well as the shopping and restaurant district.
When you’re vacationing in a town as beautiful as Bolton Landing on Lake George, there’s no excuse to not put on your bathing suit and go for a swim.
