Any lakes within a half hour drive from Saratoga Springs?

Hi there,

I am wondering if -- aside from Saratoga lake itself -- there are any other lakes within a half hour drive or so from Saratoga Springs? We will be spending time in the area and want to check out other lakes in the region.

Thanks!

Ballston Lake, Great Sacandaga Lake (sp?), I think even Lake George. They may be a little more than thirty, but I'd be surprised if they were much more than 35....

Mclee is correct. I would add that Lake George Village is 27 miles from Saratoga Springs, but probably 25 of those miles are on a highway (route 87/the Northway) and it is a very easy trip. Mileage to Sacandaga, Luzerne, and Hunt Lake are all likely less than that, but the drives will take longer.

Ballston Lake, Round Lake, Lake Desolation, and Glen Lake are close but very small. Moreau is a beautiful (small) lake in a State Park, about 15-20 minutes from Saratoga. HTH.

Brant Lake and Schroon Lake are a little farther away (close to an hour), but are bigger Adirondack lakes.
