Smile Lake George NY weather

Can someone tell me what the weather is like at Lake George in early to mid May? Wonder if it is too cold for swimming?

The weather can be "hit or miss".

It's not too cold for swimming if you are wearing a wet-suit. Otherwise, yes it is too cold for swimming in early to mid May unless you are a Polar Bear. Here's a link to an interesting chart:

Most of the beaches on Lake George don't even open until Memorial Day weekend. And honestly, I wouldn't consider the air/water temps to be great for swimming in that area until closer to the 4th of July...
