Lake Lillinoah / Housatonic River - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Day Trip Report
Trip Dates: July 5, 2010
Nearest City: Newtown, CT
Difficulty: Moderate


We launched from the Pond Brook Launch, which was a nice launch site (though quite busy). There is a port-a-potty at this launch site.

Lake Lillinoah was a bit larger than anticipated, but offered many different possible routes. We did a lazy 2-mile route around a cove or two before returning to the launch site.

Being that it was 4th of July weekend there were many boats & jet skis on the water which offered a lot of wave activity. That being said I would reccommend this for boats less than 10ft (we have a 12 & 14ft).
