Very little boat traffic and unbelievable views. Kezar is from another time and you feel as if you are in another realm. It might have to do with Stephen King owning a lot of the real estate or the lack of jet skis. This place...More

A perfect lake. Big enough but not too big. Mountain views, sunsets, warm water for swimming, and many covers for fishing. Also the Center Lovell cafe with gourmet food and wifi in the mountains of western maine. You just can't beat it.

We used the town beach. It is clean, uncrowded, friendly, and comfortable. Bring a beach chair so you can sit on it in the very clear water and enjoy the view.

We took a day trip from North Conway, NH to visit friends who have a house on the lake. Beautiful lake with plenty of activities but the surrounding scenery is fantastic. I don't know what public amenities there are but we had a great day!

This is a beautiful lake with nice cool water. We rented a boat at the marina because two of us are experienced boaters and spent the day exploring the lake, swimming in the fresh clean water, and taking turns on the tube. The owner of...More

We travelled from Ireland on a tour of some of the East Coast cities. Part of that trip included a week long stay on Kezar lake. I'll admit my reason for even knowing about this part of Maine is down to my interest (I'm his...More
