    About Amston Lake
    Downtown Hartford Just 30 Minutes Away

    Located in Hebron, Connecticut, Amston Lake is just minutes from small-town establishments like grocery stores and restaurants. The 186-acre lake has three miles of shoreline and an average depth of six feet.

    Find an upbeat city-scene in Hartford along with the Hartford Hospital and Hartford-Brainard Airport only 30 minutes away.

    Despite a large number of properties on the lake, much of the shoreline remains undeveloped. These wooded areas have muskrats, red-tailed hawks, turkeys, possums, turtles, and an occasional beaver. While on the waters, you can spot migratory ducks, osprey, blue herons, swans, or possibly a golden eagle.
