North Country Lakes and Rivers
North Country lakes and rivers are a boater's or fisherman's dream come true. Lake George is popular for both power boating and sailing. The Lake George Steamboat Company was founded in 1817 and still offers daily cruises on the lake in season, as does Lake George Shoreline Cruises.
Warren County alone has more than 160 lakes and 1,000 miles of streams and rivers. Lake George and Lake Champlain lure fishermen with nine major game fish and a number of panfish just waiting to be hooked. ARCC members who offer recreational goods and services on Lake George include Castaway Marina, Dunham's Bay Boat Co., Dunham's Resort Corp., Harris Bay Yacht Club, and LG Boat Rentals.
Washington County's lakes and ponds offer a variety of boating and fishing experiences, as do the Battenkill and Mettawee Rivers. The Battenkill is noted for canoeing and the New York State Barge Canal, or Champlain Canal as it is known, attracts both private boats and cruise ships. Champlain Canal Tour Boats is located at Canal Lock C5 in Schuylerville and offers cruises on the canal and Hudson River in season.
The Fort Edward Yacht Basin on the Hudson River offers several amenities for boaters. Lock 12 at Whitehall, the entry in Lake Champlain, provides a number of services for boaters in this historic community.
