Location For Family Reunion

We recently returned from our first family visit to the Six Flags water park. We were impressed. Not just with the water park, but the amount of entertainment in the area for families in the summer time (obviously we were there in winter and everything was closed).

I'm proposing to my family that this year we hold our summer family reunion in Lake George. I've been doing a little bit of research, but honestly there is so much information out there I don't know where to begin.

We will probably be roughly 15 or so adults, and 8-10 kids. Looking for family accommodations to house everyone for 4 days. Not sure if camping is what we would be looking for, but chalets or cabins may work.

Can anyone advise? Thanks.

Sorry, I don't have any personal experience with these. I am sure ADK will come along with some great suggestions. HTH.

All great suggestions by JKelly

The Silver Bay location is very nice, great spot on the lake and quite popular for large groups/reunions.

Another place that is nice is http://www.trouthouse.com/

To help you more it would be nice to have things you would like close by i.e. near the Village or not, on the water or not, potential budget, etc.

If camping is what you want then there are great options - a real great idea would be to rent a few campsites on an island on the lake - you could have an entire island to yourselves

I think camping is another experience on it's own. The more I think of it, the more I am leaning towards a nice family friendly hotel.

We would like to take the kids to the Great Escape, and perhaps a waterpark.

We would like to be located near restaurants (but I don't think there is anything not located near restaurants...at least within a short drive).

I think I'm leaning towards cabins now. Or houses. We are roughly 20 people in total. The problem I seem to be encountering is that most of these resorts only offer weekly rates in the summer time. We would only be there 3-4 days.

I like the idea of cabins because at night when all the kids are in bed the adults are not confined to their hotel rooms.

The weekly requirement is quite common for the cottage/cabin business
