Keep the Lakes Fun for All

  • Treat all boaters, lake residents, and wildlife with respect and consideration.
  • Sound carries over water. Turn down the music, especially in the early and late evening and if your boat has externally facing speakers.
  • When anchoring with other boats, stay 500 feet offshore and consider tying up where there are few homes nearby.
  • Avoid large wakes, and casting near docks, boats, and swimmers.
  • Follow safe-boating rules and keep the lakes trash free.

Welcome to Twin Lakes

The Twin Lakes Association is a volunteer-based nonprofit that manages the lakes in a scientifically sound manner balancing the interests of all concerned. We sponsor scientific studies, publish long-term management plans, engage with other lake associations across the state to advocate best practices, and more. The lakes are in the northwest corner and serve as an important freshwater resource for Connecticut. We are an outdoors oriented community with interests from hiking, cycling and fishing to skiing, paddling and kayaking.
