Newfound Lake

Acclaimed as one of the cleanest large lakes in the world, Newfound Lake is cherished by residents and visitors alike. Unlike many other large lakes in New England, Newfound lake still has a vast amount of open space, thanks in large part to many large landowners and camps like Mowglis, School of the Open, Pasquanney (the Native American name for the lake), Berea, Onaway and others. Public access for boating lies at the Southwest end of the lake at Wellington State Park where there is also a beautiful beach for swimming.

Statistics:
Watershed........61,253 Acres

Elevation........587 feet
Greatest Depth...183 feet

Newfound Lake lies in four different towns along the lake. Alexandria, Bristol, Bridgewater and Hebron.
