A very beautiful park and beach. Lots of great green space as well as a water area and beach. It's a good area to relax. Clean and well maintained.

Went during the fall colours and it was spectacular. Facilities were shut, so it was very quiet and we had the beach almost to ourselves.

We came here on a work day and the place was empty. So quiet and peaceful it was awesome. The lake is very clear and shallow for a good stretch. There are barbecues nearby with tables for people to bring their own food and cook....More

This spot is absolutely beautiful; so scenic. Unfortunately, it's taken over by New Yorkers and reaches full capacity early morning on weekends. But... if you can go during the weekend, it's not at all crowded and is perfect. As a CT resident, I paid $9...More

The lake is beautiful and nestled among the rolling hills of western Connecticut. It was perfectly calm and quiet with only 2 motor boats during our summer afternoon of kayaking. There was a refreshing breeze which was nice because temperatures were in the upper 80's!...More

Squantz Pond is certainly quieter than Candlewood Lake (right across the way) but it a great place to spend the day or just afternoon! For a beginner kayaker - this lake is perfect to work on your skills or just float around looking at all...More
