Lake George, nicknamed the “Queen of American Lakes”, is a long narrow lake located at the southeast base of the Adirondack Mountains in the northeastern portion of the United States. The Lake is located in the State of New York. It is within the upper region of the Great Appalachian Valley and drains northward into Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence River. The lake is situated along the historical natural path between the valley of the Hudson River and that of the St. Lawrence, and lies on the direct land route between Albany, NY and Montreal, Canada. The lake extends about 32 miles on a north-south axis, is quite deep, and is from 1 to 3 miles in width.  The year-round population of the Lake George region is relatively small, in the summer the population can swell to over 50,000 residents, many in the Village of Lake George area at the southern end of the lake.  Lake George Warrensburg Location.

Lake George is one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the world and is known as ‘The Queen of American Lakes’??

The lake is fed by mammoth underground springs, includes 109 miles of shoreline, about 300 islands, and covers an approximate area of 44 square miles. The lake, 320 feet above sea level, varies in depth from 1 foot to 195 feet.

The mouth of the lake is located at Lake George Village and the outlet is to the north at Ticonderoga. The Lake is in fact, 210 feet higher by sea level than Lake Champlain. This is a natural wonder, since the water from Lake George empties through Ticonderoga Creek into Lake Champlain at a total fall which surpasses that of Niagara Falls.  Lake George Warrensburg Location
