    My hubby grew up in Saranac Lake and used to go to Lake George. I will ask him if he remembers any fun spots.

    We haven't been there in a long time, but DH and I once took a cruise on one of the "river boats" It was nice...we walked around did a lot of "goofy" stuff, like miniature golf, visited the fort, and of course, there is always Great Escape.

    I believe there may be a campground right next to (across the street?) from Great Escape..

    We usually head up there every year for the Horse Races in Saratoga that run in August...Now THATS fun to watch (and CHEAP!) Costs you like 5 bucks to get in and you can bring your OWN COOLER full of your own food and adult bevarages and you get to the see the horses VERY Close up as they make there way through the crowd into the track..A wonderful way to spend the day..

    As far as Great Escape, If you have kids (esp younger ones) they have an indoor water park that is a lot of fun and the kids will love!..(again if the kids are older like north of 12, they will get bored quickly). Its a waterpark and hotel in the SAME building...pretty cool..(Of course staying at the hotel is not cheap). I know there is an outdoor amusement park across the street but have not been there.

    there's lots of shopping now. the great escape is fun but bring $$$ and eat before you get there. we went this summer and for a single pizza, soda and fries was over $30!!! good time though
