Nestled in the north western section of Connecticut, Bantam Lake is a happy blend of being away from the hustle and bustle, yet not to far. The smaller towns around the lake, give the whole area a real “I’m on vacation” feel. If you are interested in water skiing, you might want to check out the Bantam Ski Club or maybe hook up with the ice sailing folks. Another fun thing to do on the lake is to head up to the northern part of the lake with your kayak or canoe and explore the winding Bantam River . Before you visit the lake, you might also want to look at these links; Bantam Lake Things To Do (including summer camps) a video of a sea plane taking off on the lake, paddling on the Bantam River, Bantam River map and a photo tour of the lake.
