The Schroon Lake public beach is surrounded by picturesque mountain vistas and is nestled at the base of gently rolling hills.

Swimming and the beach!

Perfect for swimmers of all ages and abilities, the roped-in swim area is monitored by lifeguards, and the deeper section has a floating dock to lounge on or dive off. Bring a picnic, or purchase your lunch at one of the quaint restaurants in town and enjoy it on the grassy knoll overlooking the beach. If your timing is right, you may even coordinate your food shopping with the local Farmers’ Market for fresh and locally-grown yumminess. And it's so close to town that those in your party that enjoy shopping for local goods and artwork can take a quick stroll for souvenirs.

Kids can enjoy the town park's playground equipment - which is so close that they will probably go back and forth between the water and the playground. You can also relax on a park bench or in the shade of a tree if that's more your style.

Getting there

The beach is right in town! From the south end of Main Street, access the beach from Leland Ave or Dock Street. There are parking spaces on Dock Street and roadside parking on Leland Ave.
