Paddle Sports

Candlewood Lake is a great place to explore via kayak, canoe or stand up paddleboard!

Head out on a quiet weekday or weekend morning and explore our natural shoreline areas.  You probably won't sneak up on them, but you may get to see a blue heron, osprey or even an American Bald Eagle, among many others.

See our Parks & Launches page for our guide to the launches on Candlewood Lake. 


When out enjoying the lake via paddlecraft, please be safe and follow CT laws regarding personal floatation device usage.  If you have questions, please contact the CLA.


Please note that Dyke's Point in New Milford has a car top launch which may also work well for paddlesport enthusiasts.
