Lake George, a 32-mile long freshwater lake, is among the most monitored and protected lakes in the country. With several non-profit organizations looking out for its water quality, it’s no surprise when Lake George places on lists like “15 of the Clearest Bodies of Water in North America” or “The 6 Most Beautiful Lakes in the U.S.”

It’s also the only lake in New York that has added protection from its own state agency — the Lake George Park Commission.
