Lake Luzerne is a lake that is located by Lake Luzerne, New York. Fish species present in the lake are northern pike, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, rainbow trout, brown trout, rock bass, bluegill, yellow perch, pumpkinseed sunfish, and brown bullhead.

The lake contains multiple beaches available to the public including Wayside Beach. Ice fishing tournaments occur in the wintertime and vehicles can be driven on the ice.

A small bridge is located just near the beach where people will jump off into the water. This is dangerous because the water is not very deep in this location.
