Lake Waramaug State Park

30 Lake Waramaug Road
New Preston, CT 06777

Scenically, few bodies of water in Connecticut can rival the picturesque setting of Lake Waramaug.  When vivid fall foliage is mirrored in the unrippled lake surface, the park becomes a mecca for sightseers and photographers.

Waramaug is the name of an Indian chief of the Wyantenock tribe who had hunting grounds near falls on the Housatonic River, now referred to as "Lover's Leap", in the town of New Milford.  Chief Waramaug and his followers wintered in the area now covered by Lake Lillinonah, which was later created by damming the Housatonic, and made Lake Waramaug their summer residence.

The land comprising the park, consisting of approximately 95 acres, was purchased by the State in 1920.
