Top Answers To Lake George Travel Questions
Answer this1 AnswerIf you're still looking for a place to stay, mosey on up to the Roaring Brook Ranch Resort & Conference Center (www.roaringbrookranch.com), which has stables and various riding programs for its guests ($28 per person per ride). Nearby, Bennett's Riding Stable (518.696.4444) is open to the public and offers various horseback-riding excursions. Or, you could book yourself for a stay on a dude ranch like 1000 Acres Dude Ranch Resort (www.1000acres.com), tucked away less than 15 miles from the southern end of Lake George in Stony Creek.
june64 answered:April is the perfect time to come up and visit, with the arrival of warmer spring weather and before things get too crowded up around the village. It might still be a little chilly out on the water, but you should try get out on the lake, either on a motorized tour or via your own steam through rentals from someone like Lake George Kayak (http://www.lakegeorgekayak.com/). On land, there are miles of great lakeside hiking and biking trails. April is also the start of whitewater-rafting season on area rivers including the Hudson, Black, and Moose rivers. The Moose is probably the wildest, though is a bit further from Lake George itself. Adirondack River Outfitters run trips down the Hudson from their base in North River, 27 miles northwest of Lake George Village (http://www.aroadventures.com/welcome.htm). If you're feeling a bit zany, Gore Mountain has its annual end-of-season pond-skimming championships on April 7; more info here: http://www.goremountain.com/mountain/moreinfo.cfm?id=182
In most states, you can rent personal water crafts over the age of 16. However, it might be different in NY. Call the hotel you're staying in and ask the concierge. He or she should be able to tell you.
