New York salutes its canine pals with the gift of a beach especially for dogs who reside in the Lake George area.
Golden sand leading to a placid lake sets the scene for swim time with your favorite pooch. A few paws away is the popular Millionaire's beach, where restrooms and showers are available. Paid parking is right behind the beach with a paved walk-way and beautiful Battlefield Park across the road.
A local pet-friendly business is the sponsor for this dog water-heaven and has kindly provided litter bag stations for owners to pick up their fur-babies' waste. Lake George is a scenic space flanked by hills on one side and a steamboat company on the other. Stately lakeside homes offer an opulent view while pooches test their swimming skills or catch Frisbee's out of the air. The edge of the lake is shallow for tiny pups and gets a little deeper for bigger breeds to practice their dog paddle
Most dogs are off-leash and well behaved with owners soaking up the sun as pooches revel in the watery fun. Dogs can frequent the beach from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend and with a busy road in view, its essential your dog listens to your vocal cues otherwise, it might be wise to keep them on a long leash. The beach can be accessed from 7 in the morning, a time when pooches in the area get ready to feel the sand scrunching under their paws.
Lake George village is a tourism dream with sandy white beaches, restaurants and a history lesson in American independence. This picturesque, dog-friendly lake gets its name from King George II of England, giving an insight into the battles fought to secure this prize, lakeside settlement. Coming to Lake George for the summer is a time-honored tradition and a paw-some place to bring the dog.
