Is there any public beachfront/lakeside on Saratoga Lake? Or, is all the shoreline private?

I live around the area and I'm not quite sure where the public beach around Saratoga Lake is. I know there's Brown's beach, but that's private I think and they charge a small admission. There's also a Marina on the south side and one on the north side that has boat rentals and a place to launch your boat. I don't know of any public park that actually sits on the shores of Saratoga Lake. I would like to know where the public beach is so I can go visit.

I used to live in Luther Forest & could ride my bike to Brown's Beach. If memory serves me, it is located just off Route 9P about a mile or so from Routes 9 & 67 (exit 14 off the Northway). For now, Brown's Beach is the only public beach on Saratoga Lake (that I am aware of). Although they are meeting with some well deserved resistance, developers are trying to convert it to a resort with hotel, but I haven't heard anything about that for some time now.

What a shame. Such a pretty lake; just the right size for families with small kids. So unlike the traffic snare along the Lake George south end beaches.
Moreau Lake (about 20-30 minutes farther north of Saratoga Lake) is nice. Smaller, but nice.

There are no public beaches on Saratoga Lake.Brown's Beach has been closed for several years.Ther was contemplation of building townhouses and condos but has been put on hold.The city of Saratoga Springs has purchased the property that was formerly the Sands Lounge,off Crescent St.They have tentative plans to build a public beach and rec area there.

I remember going to Browns beach as a kid--there was an amusement park right next door (Kaydeeross?) and you could get a tag on a string that tied to your bathing suit strap or wrist to ride all day and come and go between the park and the beach.

Frankly the beach was more mud than sand and the water was cold and murky, it wasn't a particularly good place to swim. Of course as a 10 year old I loved it, but the older I got the more I realized--ick.

Kayderos and Browns Beach were in 2 different parts of Saratoga Lake. I'm not sure how old you are so I dont know if you remember that Browns had a couple of rides as well. I remember a ferris wheel and a couple smaller rides. Kayderos was on the other side of the lake and it had rides and an inground pool. I remember the ride the mouse trap that rickety roller coaster but it was a lot of fun there.
