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 swimming 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.

Brown’s Beach Marina

A message from our Manager, Bob Morris:  Over thirty years ago I started working on boats & docks for my grandfather, Bob Morris, the original owner of Brown’s Beach for decades.  Now, I am happy to return to work on the lake as the new Brown’s Beach Marina Manager for the Town of Stillwater. I look forward to working with you to insure a relaxing, enjoyable summer on Saratoga Lake.  

Brown’s Marina is a PRIVATE Marina. There is NO public launching and NO docking any vessels, unless you have a current slip rental (includes PWC). Currently, we have a waitlist of over 300 that started back in 2016 when Menneto’s ran the marina for the town. We are no longer accepting names for our wait list.
