Our History
Originally founded in the 1920s, the Pilot Knob Marina is one of the oldest marinas on the lake. Located on the east side of beautiful Lake George in upstate New York, nestled in the heart of the Adirondacks. In addition to top quality service, the marina offers a gas dock with the best dock attendants on the lake, as well as a "mini" grocery store stocked with the necessities for a weekend outing. During the boating season the marina is open 7 days a week.

We're Avid Boaters and Outdoor Enthusiasts
The Pilot Knob Marina is co-owned by long time friends Nick Barber and Mike Smith who purchased it in 1986. Being avid boaters and outdoor enthusiasts, their goal was to provide their customers with the best boating experience possible. Our alliance with the Chaparral Boat Company has helped us make that goal a reality, and is evident by the number of repeat buyers and customer referrals! Our current customer satisfaction index rating (CSI) is bordering on 100%, so we must be doing something right!

Sales Outlet: Boat and Outdoor Motorsports Sales
In 1995 we opened a second location southeast of Lake George village on Route 149. This has become our sales outlet and is open 7 days a week year-round for your convenience. This location allowed us the opportunity to offer an expanded range of products with the addition of Arctic Cat and Textron Off Road (TOR) franchises. Here you will find our new and used boat inventory, as well as a sampling of our Arctic Cat snowmobiles & Textron Off Road atvs and sport and utility side by side (SXS) vehicles, along with boating accessories and a large assortment of snowmobile & atv parts, accessories and gear.

2016 brought with it our 30th anniversary, a milestone that we are extremely proud of! We remain acutely aware of the fact that we couldn't have made it this far without you!
