Scenically, few bodies of water in Connecticut can rival the picturesque setting of Lake Waramaug. When the vivid fall foliage is mirrored in the un-rippled lake surface, the park amazes sightseers and photographers. Countless water activities may be enjoyed in the park.
Lake Waramaug State Park consists of 95 acres and is located in Kent, CT. Waramaug is the name of an Indian chief of the Wyantenock tribe who had hunting grounds near falls on the Housatonic River, now referred to as “Lover’s Leap,” in the town of New Milford. Chief Waramaug and his followers wintered in the area now covered by Lake Lillinonah, which was later created by damming the Housatonic, and made Lake Waramaug their summer residence.
