Million Dollar Beach

Million Dollar Beach is the largest and most popular beach in Lake George Village. It is state-run, clean, and family friendly. The beach features picnicking, swimming, a volleyball court, showers and changing rooms, and lifeguards on duty. The picnic tables and grills by the beach are available on a first come first served basis.

There is also a public boat launch which includes a boat inspection/boat wash station, to prevent the spread of invasive species.

Cable Gear
Photo of an axle for one of the cable gears at the old incline railway on Prospect Mountain in Lake George, NY. 

Prospect Mountain originally had to use an incline railway car to access the house at the top where people could dance and eat. Construction on the railway began in January 1895 and cost $120,000 total. Construction was finished six months later, with the railway opening on June 15, 1895. After failing financially, the railway system ceased operation in 1903. The area was bought and soon donated to the State of NY. The nearby hiking trail that heads up towards the mountaintop is part of the old railway.

In 1932, the building at the top of the mountain burned down and was replaced by a steel fire tower. For 30 years, people studied what to do with the land, which was owned by the state, and in 1954, New York Governor Tom Dewey signed legislation to build a highway up the mountain. Twelve years later, in 1966, then-Governor Nelson Rockefeller made funds available for the highway. The Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway was opened in 1969, dedicated to war veterans and providing access to the 2,021-foot summit with a 100-mile view at its peak.
