Looking for a spot to soak up the sun close to home? While most of the shoreline is privately owned, Brown’s Beach is one of the only public swimmings spots on Saratoga Lake. In addition to relaxing on the sand and enjoying the view of the lake, Brown’s Beach is a great spot to take a quick dip or learn water sports such as kayaking or paddle boarding due to its shallow launch area.

Brown’s beach had been a popular destination for years until it was purchased by private developers in 2006. However, the Town of Stillwater purchased a section of the beachfront, as well as a marina that are open for public use and reopened it in May 2015.

Cost: 12 and under FREE
13 and over $3 (Residents are $2)
BEACH PASS: 10 visits for $20. Available for purchase to Town Residents Only at the Town Clerks office.
