You may have been first introduced to Lake Zoar at a wedding reception at the Waterside or possibly someone invited you out on their boat for a raft-up  or maybe you went to Kettletown State Park for a picnic or trail walk, who knows you might have found the lake by kayaking down the Pomperaug River  If you have not visited Lake Zoar yet you just might want to put it on your bucket list. With more than 900 acres of boating and fishing waters, and miles of open land state forest it really is a most enjoyable lake to visit. Bordered by the towns of Newtown, Oxford, Monroe and Southbury, Lake Zoar provides many recreation areas with boat ramps, kayaking, swimming, canoeing, wildlife viewing, hiking trails, and picnic areas. The lake is long and rather narrow, stretching about 10 river-like miles with steep forested banks along most of its length. Another fun spot to visit on the lake is the Lake Zoar Drive-in , enjoy a burger and a nice view of the lake.

Connecticut Light and Power createdLakeZoarby building the Stevenson Dam to impound a section of theHousatonicRiverbelow what is now the Shepaug Dam. The resulting reservoir was designed for generation of hydroelectric power and help to control flooding along theHousatonicvalley. Few expected the resulting lake to become so popular a recreational resource for so many. FirstLight Power Resources now operates the dam and powerhouse. Construction of the dam and powerhouse was completed in 1919. At that point in time, the dam was a pretty amazing engineering project.
