Summer watersports are fun, exciting, and family friendly activities that people of all ages can enjoy. There’s no better way to spend a weekend at Lake George, Schroon Lake, or Loon Lake than out on the water soaking up the sun. But it’s no secret that boats and aquatic crafts can be expensive to purchase, time consuming to maintain, and difficult to transport between home and your vacation destination.
That’s why at Schroon Lake Marina, there’s a wide variety of boat styles and watersport equipment available for rent so that you can take full advantage of your time at Schroon Lake without the hassle of having to haul your own equipment here.

Maybe it is the location, practically child proof, maybe it is the wonderful enthusiasm of Joe Mallie manager and his staff, and maybe it is the volunteers from the HRFA but for all of the above, including a beautiful day to be fishing, this group of wounded warrior veterans and their families all had a wonderful day!
I travel the Hudson River Valley almost every day, all day, seven days a week!

We’d heard that it had been extended north a half-mile to 34th Street, and this new section swung pretty much due west towards the Hudson and the West Side Highway: Tuesday was to be sunny and in the low 80’s: a far far cry from overcast weeks and weeks in the 30’s-50’s: “Let’s go!!!”.
It began four years ago as a way of keeping a tradition alive by focusing on children!
Pat Harbolic and Tom Colandra, brought up in the wonderful fishing community of Verplanck felt that the recreational fishing industry needed a boost. So with no money and only a dream the two began talking up a really tiny striped bass fishing derby for just a few friends.

It used to be that many a child would go to their grandparents when they were old enough to walk to get a basic understanding of what life is all about! That included fishing, hunting, trapping, and how to operate a boat. These children were perfectly capable of handling the boat and going fishing by the time they were twelve years old.
