Lake George

Lake George is quite possibly the busiest lake in the Adirondacks. At 32 miles long, it is a summer vacationland for millions. There are many opportunities for primitive camping, both on islands and the shoreline, and these may be reserved online through ParkNet. However, despite the use, the lake remains very scenic. It is beautifully nestled amongst mountains on all sides: Black Mt. and Buck Mt. on the east, and the Tongue Mountain Range on much of the west. The photos shown here are both of the Narrows, a group of state-owned islands with many camping opportunities.

The rise on the peninsula jutting into the left side
of the lake next to the Narrows is Shelving Rock Mt.

and beyond that is the taller Buck Mt.
