Natural Features:

The forest surrounding Hop Brook Lake is made up of a wide variety of trees, including white pine, maple, oak, hickory, ash, and dogwood.

Wildlife is abundant in the area. Bird watchers will find hawks, turkeys, waterfowl, and songbirds. White-tailed deer, beaver, squirrels, chipmunks, and many other animals make Hop Brook Lake their home.

Recreation:

Exploring Hop Brook Lake by canoe, sailboard, or rowboat is a favorite activity of visitors. The park's beach and swimming area are great places to relax in the warm summer sun.

Fishing is welcomed at the lake and on its feeder streams, which are stocked with brown, brook, and rainbow trout. Bass and panfish are also found in the lake.

Hikers will find over seven miles of trails winding through the woods and meadows at Hop Brook Lake. An 11-hole disc golf course is also located within the park. The course has scenic views of the lake and dam, and is good for beginners and intermediates of all ages.
