Lake St. George in Liberty is deep and clean and full of fish. Johns Ice Cream Factory is next to the boat launch. I know plenty of people who leave their houses, pass about a dozen ice cream places, and keep driving 45 more minutes for an ice cream cone at Johns. The little shop in the middle of nowhere specializes in homemade, limited edition, and seasonal flavors like raspberries and cream, peppermint stick, peanut butter crunch, and chocolate orange peel. 510 Belfast Augusta Road (Route 3), 207-589-3700, small cone $3.
