We had a great experience at Million Dollar Beach. Very clean and friendly. Even the food was acceptable at the snack bar! You can rent beach chairs too!

“Nice views of the Adirondacks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

My friend and I spent a few hours walking around the village of Lake George on the 4th of July weekend after our tubing trip was cancelled. I go to Lake George many times a year since I am from the Albany area, but I don't often go to this beach in season.

The bathroom and changing facilities were more than adequate considering there was no admission fee.

The beach itself is quite small so I would recommend getting there early to get a spot.

The water is fairly gentle and nice for young children.

“Crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

This is a beautiful beach with clean showers and lockers. That's the plus side. Last week I was there two days in a row during the week. The first day we went to the left side of the beach and the lifeguard didn't come until 1pm so if you wanted to swim before then, you had to walk to the other side of beach. The second day we got there at 10 am when it opened and there were 2 busloads of campers. They took over the whole right side of the beach and the water. My husband and I went to the left side which also became very crowded by 11 am but this day, no lifeguard ever came. Once again you had to walk over to the other side and the water was packed full of people. There were 3 lifeguards to the right but none on the other side of the beach. One of the lifeguards was so preoccupied with watching to make sure no one was swimming on the left side of the beach and his eyes were not always on the people he should have been watching. He was doing his job but he had too much of an area to watch which was very dangerous.
Also, the ropes are placed too close to shore so you are only waist deep at the deepest level. Very annoying for adult swimmers.
