Join us for a paddle at Queechy Lake.
Queechy Lake is a natural body of water; however, sometime prior to 1910, the water levels were raised as a result of the construction of a dam along the Stony Kill, a tributary of Queechy Lake. The purpose of the dam was to store water that would supply mills located downstream. In the early 17th Century, a summer of dry weather contributed to decreased water levels, which exposed a muddy surface at the lower end of the lake.
