I loved going here with my dog Lucy and still hike there today with her in spirit! Wonderful selection of travels with varying degrees of elevation and terrain.

This is an easy and accessible hiking area for all. The only downside is that those who do not have control of their dogs don't keep them on a lease. We had a frightening experience with an unleashed dog who scared my little guy by grabbing his pant leg. No owner appeared to take responsibility or apologize. Needless to say, it was a while before my son wanted to go hiking again and it is in our backyard. If an owner cannot control their dog, it shouldn't be off leash, if it is allowed.

Nice beach, very good concession stand, and if you're a senior citizen you get in for free even if you're not a Fairfield resident. The water is cold but not that bad - it's an inland lake, after all. There's an outdoor shower to reduce the amount of ssnd you end up taking home. They need a bench in the men's room so you can change more easily. I bring my entrenching tool to dig my umbrella in deep enough because the beach can get a good cross breeze. No dogs on the beach at least until Oct. 1st.

I have lived near Lake Mohegan Recreation area for over 40 years. I have seen it grow over the years into an area that has more to offer than it first did when we moved here. It has walking trails, dog trails, a barbecue area, a playground, hiking areas, swimming areas and more.
