Lake George Mystery Spot
You won’t see any signage for the attraction known as the Lake George Mystery Spot, but this mind-bending natural phenomenon is a must-do for your next trip to Lake George.
Located next to the Visitor Center we staff, there is a raised circular platform in Blais Park on Beach Road. Metal rails come together in the middle of the concrete to form a compass design. The shape of Lake George is painted in blue over the platform. If you stand directly in the middle of the circle and speak, you’ll hear an unexplained echo that people a few feet from you won’t believe until they experience it for themselves.
You should stand on the spot where the metal rods cross.
If you’re looking for a scientific explanation, no one has been able to provide one. There are some theories that the wall around the circle factors into the echo. It could be the mountains and the lake in relation to that specific longitude and latitude. Spiritual theories abound as well; Some say the echo was created long ago when a Native American deity appeared and so his wisdom echos forever more in this spot.
One thing is clear — whether you’re reciting proverbs or shouting gibberish, you’ll definitely hear a strange echo in this spot.
