September 10, 2017 Leonarda Pillsbury

Warrensburg is a town in Warren County, New York, United States. It is centrally located in the county, west of Lake George. It is part of the Glens Falls Metropolitan Statistical Area. The town population was 4,255 at the 2000 census. While the county is named after General Joseph Warren, the town is named after James Warren, a prominent early settler.

Lake George

During a 1791 visit, Thomas Jefferson was moved to say, "Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw." Not much has changed. Today this 32-mile long, 3-mile wide dazzling lake draws vactioners who come to enjoy a plethora of outdoor endeavors including sailing, swimming, cruising on historic steamboats, hiking and more.

If you want to get an up close and personal look at Lake George, this is absolutely 100% the way to go. Bolton Boat Tours is a family run business with a home port at the Treasure Cove Resort on Lake Shore Drive in Diamond Point that is easily accessible in less than 10 minutes from the Village of Lake George all the way up to Bolton Landing. Father and son captains Ted and Tim both will go out of their way to ensure your time with them is customized to the exact activities you want to do in the locations you want to see. We booked a tour with Captain Tim last week, and despite the chilly and overcast conditions, it was the highlight of our vacation. Tim has been navigating Lake George since he was in Elementary School, and his knowledge and love of the lake and its natural inhabitants was infectious. In our two hours together, Tim managed to show us many of the natural highlights that the narrows section of Lake George contain, took us to Paradise Bay and allowed my oldest son to try his hand at some fishing (the weather here was actually a blessing, as we had the entire Bay to ourselves!), took us over to Glen Island at my wife's request to rekindle some childhood memories, and even managed to gently coax my extremely anxious son out on to Super Mable for some tubing, which he absolutely loved. Our only regret was that we only booked for two hours.
Bolton Boat Tours is a class operation. The 27' boats they run are well maintained and extremely clean. The bow seating is perfect for taking in the scenery of the Lake, and all of the safety equipment is top notch. Look, I spent 8 years as a Boatswain's Mate in the United States Coast Guard. I am completely comfortable and capable of piloting a small boat on my own. Despite that knowledge and ability, Captain Tim provided my family and I an experience that I would not have been able to recreate. This family's knowledge of the area and love for what they do and where they do it is unmatched. You can't help but stumble into some truly beautiful scenery when you're in the Lake George region, but if you want to see what is truly the best the lake has to offer, you should book a tour with Bolton Boat Tours.

Reviewed By MoccasinMike - Duluth, Minnesota

Nothing finer than a day in the woods getting away from a tourist trap town to hike up the mountain to a 100-year defunct tourist trap. Not much for scenic viewing until you get to the top, but the top is really good. Two hours up and one hour down.

Great place to rent a boat. Friendly staff and good instructions on boat use. Wife and I rented a deck boat for all day use. we were given a map of lake and told of points of interest to see. Had a great time checking out Lake George and cruising the lake. Checking in of boat at the end of day was easy. Will try to rent another day before leaving this summer. Thanks to all the staff.
Just a note to Future renters, there is a boat rental shop in Lake George that charges a flat rate of $120.00 for gas, we were out on lake for 7 hours and used 8 gallons. Check gas prices before you rent.

Heard about this place but words cannot do it justice. Walking in the smell overwhelms the senses. Just saying try the German potato salad makes my mouth water. The bologna and liverwurst fresh and delicious and beautifully sliced. Porterhouse steak as good as I have ever eaten out or cooked in. Smoked mozzarella, if you like smoked cheese, is to die for. They also stock local cheese spreads and their champagne cheddar spread is perfect with any cracker. If you are in Warrensburg or any where near Warrensburg - stop in and enjoy.

Pontoon Boat Tours of Lake George

Enjoy your private, customized Guided cruise on the pristine crystal clear waters of Lake George, New York on board our Deluxe Pontoon Boat.

Reviewed By PingJing - Scotia, NY

I had an amazing boat tour experience on Pontoon Boat Tour of Lake George in June, 2007. Our two Guides Mike and Christine are very friendly and knowledge about the Lake, the boat is new and very clean, the views are breathtaking, the experience is unforgettable.

My first trip to Lake George was in 2006, I went to the village, walked along the lake a little, then I think I have been to Lake George, it is nothing fancy. It is just another Lake. My trip this year proves how wrong I was and also proves how important it is to have someone who has local knowledge to guide you thought a place like Lake George.

I am so glad I took the Pontoon boat tour of Lake George this year when i visit Lake George. Lake George is never the same any more. We went deep inside of Lake George, went through islands, bays, mountains, cliffs and all the beautiful areas. We didn't go swim or walk to the islands, but you can definitely jump into the clear water
of Lake George, walk to the beautiful Waterfalls, going hiking on the
mountains. I had never know Lake George is such beautiful Lake. I definitely recommend Pontoon Boat Tours of Lake George to anyone who is interested to explore the natural beauty of the Queen of American lakes--- Lake George. You won't be disappointed.

Charles Lathrop Demonstration Pack Forest

Forest with many easy hiking trails, self-guided learning stations and unique plants.

Reviewed By Marty P - The Adirondacks

Open year round, this is a 2,500 wooded property located about 10 miles north of Lake George Village. The principle trail is a 4-mile level logging road around a lake, but there are multiple side trails. Activities include hiking, bicycle riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and fishing. There is a boat launch area for non-motorized boats, but you'll need to carry your canoe or kayak about 150 feet from your car to the water. In winter, the frozen surface of the lake can be used for ice skating. Dogs are allowed on a leash. In the summer, environmental workshops are conducted for school children, but the park is otherwise little used. There are no trail maps available for the park.
