Moreau Lake State Park's lake lies amid hardwood forests, pine stands and rocky ridges. Shady groves of trees shelter picnic grounds and a pavilion overlooking the lake. Wooded campgrounds are quiet and secluded, offering facilities for group campers, as well as tent and trailer sites. The sandy beach, nature, hiking and cross-country ski trails, opportunities for boating, fishing and ice fishing, and proximity to the Saratoga Springs and Lake George areas make the park attractive to visitors. A wooden pavilion with a 120-person capacity and three canvas tents, which can accommodate from 35-50 people, may be reserved on a daily basis. In the summer, beach lounges, beach umbrella and fishing gear can be rented. In the winter, snowshoes are available for rent daily. Located on the beach road is our vacation rental. The Lake Shore Cottage provides everything from a refrigerator, stove, dishes and utensils to a screened porch, bathroom with shower, bedding, pillows and a cozy fireplace.

Nice wooded trail hike. The out and back from the parking lot to Lake Ann is approximately a 3.6 mile hike. Took white trail marker from parking lot, turned right onto green and then just after the picnic bench overlooking Bonita lake took the trail to the right marked with lavender markers. At the lean-to you there is a new wooden deck to the edge of Lake Ann which I would describe as a pond.

A nice little trail though it is a little hard to follow the trail with all of the leaves that are down

A nice trek. Started to left side of lake and found trails to be hard to follow despite a comprehensive trail marker system in place. The leaves on the trail didn't help but I was told the first several miles of my hike were on new trails. I was hoping for views of the Hudson but they were limited. I dropped down to the road to have a look, that was nice. Went back on the power line road but had to bushwack back to trail. Continued on trails but was on limited time so bushwacked to the Grant Summit, more or less. The woods are pretty open so bushwacking was nice. Continued back then took a wrong turn onto the fire road, thought that might be a good option but it was heading down to the prison. I opted to bushwack up the hill to get back on the trail to see the lake up there, near the cabin. That was worth it. Worked my way back via the pink trail markers. My Garmin said I did 9+ miles so keep that in mind and know you can avoid the bushwacking if you want.

It's a quick hike and an incredible view of Moreau Lake. A pretty consistent incline, but not difficult. Great spot for pictures and a picnic at the top.
