With a name like Lake George, it’s no surprise that our Adirondack town is a water-lovers oasis. But, beyond the lake that gave our town its name, you will find several lakes and rivers nearby that offer endless fun on the water. One of the most popular ways to get on the water during summer is with white water rafting near Lake George. We are centrally located near the Hudson and Sacandaga Rivers, where you can find rafting adventures for all ages and abilities. Set up your base camp at The Lodges at Cresthaven and stay right on the shores of Lake George this summer! And when you’re ready for some exhilarating fun, check out one of these white water rafting tours.
Hudson River Rafting
The Hudson River Gorge offers some of the best white water rafting in the country, with class three to five rapids depending on the time of year. The trips will take you along 17 miles of rapids with spectacular scenery.
Wild Waters Outdoor Center offers a four-hour white water rafting trip on the Hudson Gorge for ages eight and up. Your trip includes transportation, helmets, wetsuits, a riverside lunch, snacks, and a licensed guide.
Sign up for an exhilarating white water rafting adventure with Beaver Brook Outfitters. The summer rafting trips are always consistent thanks to the dam on Lake Abanakee that releases water needed for the trips. Similar to Wild Waters, all necessary gear is included in the price of your tour.
Sacandaga River Rafting
If you visit Lake George with kids or have never been rafting, we recommend the trips on the Sacandaga River. The slow-flowing water is perfect for beginners and is only ten minutes from town!
Raft down the Sacandaga River for 3.5 miles with the whole family, since ages five and up, are welcome to join the fun. You will have to bring your own footwear, swimwear, sunscreen, and a towel for your trip. For the ultimate relaxation, sign up for a lazy river tubing trip for an afternoon of family fun!
Sacandaga Outdoor Center offers even more fun for families with water cannons and buckets for water fights on the river. All trips include a paddle, PFD, and an expert guide. Your expert guide will tell you all about your surrounding environment as you raft together down the Sacandaga River.
