After the successful debut of Ice Castles in Lake George last year, we are excited to announce that this winter attraction will return in 2023! More than 25 million pounds of ice will transform into a magical display of ice slides, caverns, mazes, crawl tunnels, and igloo villages. The Lodges at Cresthaven invites you to visit this unique winter phenomenon that coincides with the annual Lake George Winter Carnival. Read on to learn what’s new for the 2023 New York Ice Castles.
