qUEEN OF aMERICAN lAKES
Thomas Jefferson loved Lake George. Here is a quote from the late president Jefferson
"Lake George is without comparison, the most beautiful water I ever saw; formed by a contour of mountains into a basin... finely interspersed with islands, its water limpid as crystal, and the mountain sides covered with rich groves... down to the water-edge: here and there precipices of rock to checker the scene and save it from monotony."
-- Thomas Jefferson, May 31, 1791

About halfway up the lake, around the 15 mile mark, is Glen island. The Ranger station, and small quaint Grocery store on the island,support all the campers out on the islands. There's also a restroom/outhouse on the island. The kids love to stop for an ice cream on a hot summer day
