Recreation Options outside of Lake George Village

We camp every year in Lake George and we will be there next week for 10 days (7/11-7/20). This trip we would really like to explore areas outside of the village. We are thinking of going to Saratoga for the day to see what they have there and we are hopinh to ride our bikes near by. We have done the bike trail that is in Lake George Village but that path is very short and once you are in town you have all the same old tourist things to do. Does anyone have any suggestions of places we should see nearby? We don't really want to spend alot of time driving (like over 60 miles) and so forth. WE love playing golf at the Par 3 course SunnySide just outside of Lake George. Does anyone know if the craft fair in town will be going on while we are there this year? We happened upon that one year and really enjoyed ourselves. Any other fun things to do in the Lake George area besides the downtown things, Prospect Mountain and the other regular things would be greatly appreciated....

Thank you!

The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain lake is always good. Saratoga has many great things to do; the Saratoga battlefield great biking in the battlefield , the Racing museum, the Saratoga Auto Museum. Glens Falls has thr Hyde Art Museum, Up Yonda Farms in Bolton Landing, Ausable Chasm to name a few. Fort Ticonderoga is also a lot of fun for all ages.

Great suggestions by ADK.


Are you sure you did the whole bike trail? The Warren County Bikeway is 9 miles long and has alot of interesting places to visit. Info and a map are here:


Maybe you only did a portion of it?

Also, if you are interested in Mountain Biking, West Mountain has lifts to the top and you can bike down:


Here are some golfing options nearby:
