About Ashford Lake
Enjoy the Seclusion

Ashford Lake has the same down-home feel as the town of Ashford, settled in the beautiful forests of northeast Connecticut.

Convenience stores and restaurants are nearby, while Hartford, the Hartford Hospital, the Hartford-Brainard Airport, hotels, and more are 35 minutes away.

Naturally Beautiful Spring-Fed Lake

The glimmering waters of this spring-fed lake cover 53 acres and reach depths of 12 feet. Ashford Lake was created by an earth-embankment dam in 1949. The lake is exclusive to the Ashford Lake Property owners, giving members a sense of privacy and comforts of uncrowded waters.

Lake Activities

Ashford Lake’s calm waters are a delight for swimmers, kayakers, and fishers alike. Soak up the sun while you swim the day away at the beach or get a golden tan.

The largemouth bass is the lake’s specialty, but anglers also enjoy scouting the waters for other fish species. Residents can try their luck from boats, docks, or the shore.

Hiking and More

The nearby Yale-Myers Forest features beautiful foliage throughout all four seasons. Hike the well-marked Nipmuck Trail to see waterfalls, rock features, and more while you birdwatch or spot unusual flora. Find even more hiking at the Natchaug State Forest or Mansfield Hollow State Park.

Explore the natural beauty of Hartford at one of its many city parks or excellent golf courses. The city also has the Mark Twain Museum, Xfinity Amphitheater, Connecticut Science Center, or the Shoppes at Buckland Hill.
