I had this Friday off from work, and Leesa was able to spare a couple hours off in the morning so we went for a 2 hour paddle at the south end of Lake George. We parked at a small pulloff of Route 9, just west of Pilot Knob Road and launched from a little piece of state land that accesses Warner Bay. You can carry your boat 50' from the pulloff to the launch site.

Sandy Bay is known for its' shallow water and sandy bottom. Many boats anchor off Sandy Bay so people can swim. It's a great spot for little kids with most of the area having a water depth of 1-4'.
We enjoyed a swim then paddled north along the east side of Cleverdale to Ripley Point. From there we could see Assembly Point and Long Island.
We looped around and returned to Warner Bay and back out. A nice 2 hour paddle. The water really is clear. In many spots, you can see the bottom 12-15 feet below.
