people swimming and sun bathing at brown's beach

Spend a summer day at the beach right here in Saratoga. Most of Saratoga Lake's shoreline is privately owned, with Brown's Beach being the only place for the general public to catch some rays and take a dip in the water. The water is shallow and you'll be treated to stunning views of the lake and Snake Hill, with the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains in the distance.

Brown's Beach has been a popular attraction since the nineteenth century. The beach closed in 2006, but was reopened in 2015 by the Town of Stillwater. Grab a bite to eat at the beach's own snack shack, or sit out on the patio at Dock Brown's and enjoy a lakeside meal.
