5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

On a trip back from New Milford, we stopped in Bridgewater for sandwiches, then drove down to the boat launch area on the Lake and ate them. It could not have been more beautiful !!!

“Don't miss the castle ruins”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

Our family loved walking around the shore on this lake, discussing the histories of both settlers and natives in the area. Lovely scenery, great options for places to wander around, and all super close to settled areas full of places to stop and eat. Don't fail to notice the (usually) clean solar-powered composting toilets made available for visitors!

“Walk the trails too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012 via mobile

I have not been on the lake but the hiking trails are nice. Easy to spend a couple of hours just walking around the lake through the woods away from road noise and people. Mostly easy trails with a few steep climbs and drops. If its wet, wear the right shoes.
