Candlewood Lake

Can you name the largest lake in Connecticut?

Candlewood Lake is aptly named, not for its size but for its power: Candlewood Lake helps to generate electric light, measured in millions of candlepower.

(Candlepower is the scientific unit of light intensity, based on the emission from a candle, that has been made to a specified formula.)

Candlewood occupies numerous valleys, which lie between forest-covered hills.

To get a full taste of the lake, pay a visit to the Echo Bay Marina, and see about renting or even purchasing a boat. For the really adventurous, try renting water skis.

During your day by the lake, make sure to stop by the Down the Hatch Restaurant.
