Glen Lake

Queensbury, NY 12845


Glen Lake is located in the Town of Queensbury right by the Great Escape. The lake is popular for rentals, boating, fishing, and its surrounding hotspots.

About Glen Lake

Glen Lake is a two mile long natural freshwater and dam controlled lake. The depth is roughly 50 feet at normal water elevation. There are two islands on the eastern side of the lake, and a public boat launch for canoes and kayaks is situated on the western side adjacent to the Docksider Restaurant. The lake's calm waters are perfect for a fairly private and relaxing boating trip.

Things To Do

  • The Docksider Restaurant is located at 298 Glen Lake Road and offers great food and beautiful views of Glen Lake. The restaurant is open year round, and during the summer, you can watch boaters from the outside deck.
  • The Full Moon Bar and Grill is located at the northwestern end of the lake at 490 Glen Lake Road. The restaurant offers seafood, sandwiches, barbecue, and more. 
  • The Glenmoore Lakeside Cottages & Lodge are located at 330 Glen Lake Road right by the Docksider and within walking distance of the water.
  • Due south of Glen Lake is the much smaller Round Pond where you'll find the Glens Falls Country Club.

If you want to explore Glen Lake yourself, take your boat to the public launch site. You'll find picnic tables, a fishing dock, and a small parking area. The launch is open seasonally during day-light hours.

For fishermen, Glen Lake is known to have brown bullhead, chain pickerel, largemouth bass, pumpkinseed, smallmouth bass, walleye, and yellow perch.
