A friend who grew up in lake george area suggested our family of 4 (kids 8 and 11) try Canoe Island and we were happy we did. The rooms are not fancy at all, but big enough, comfortable and were cleaned each day. The layout of the resort is such that the kids can safely go off on their own with their friends to play games, swim, or attend one of the many scheduled activities put on by the resort. Food was better than expected, good variety each night, and the BBQ on the island was a real treat. Fishing in lake george was awesome...lot's of bass to catch and even good fishing right off of the Canoe Island docks where my son and I spent many hours. Staff was excellent from the activities director, management, boat team, etc..and we received smiles and a 'how can I help make your stay great' attitude. In a nutshell a great place to spend a classic summer vacation with so much outdoor activity, swimming, sailing, tubing, relaxing by the water that our kids never once asked about going to the water park, arcade, etc...Liked it so much we are going back same week next year. Oh ya...if you golf be sure to play Top of the World...fine course, great views of lake george and short $ for 18 holes.
