About Candlewood Lake

The largest man-made lake in the state of Connecticut, Candlewood Lake encompasses a surface area of 5420 acres in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties.

 

Its construction began in 1926, for the purpose of producing hydro-electric power.

 

By 1928, Candlewood Lake was complete and took just 7 months to fill.

 

Today, the massive body of water has an average depth of 29.3 feet, a maximum depth of 90 feet, and approximately 65 miles of shoreline.

 

What's on the Water?

Candlewood Lake has been called "the best fishing hole in Connecticut."

 

With plentiful populations of large and smallmouth bass, catfish perch and sunfish, there is something for every angler.

 

Candlewood Lake has even produced a few state record catches including a 1941 record walleye and a white perch in 1996.

 

This lake is motorboat and jet ski-friendly and welcomes most water sports including wakeboarding, tubing, water skiing and diving.

 

For Lake and Land Lovers

Camping is prohibited on Candlewood Lake but there is still plenty to do in the area.

 

Each year, the city of Dunbury, a city which borders the lake, puts on an annual Independence Day fireworks display, and the Millitary Museum of Southern New England is less than ten miles away.

 

Other Candlewood Lake attractions include one of the biggest shopping malls in Connecticut at Danbury Fair and the Westside Nature Preserve.
