This is a relatively small, 66-acre, infertile, warm water pond located off Amherst Street just northwest of the center of Granby. Amherst Street divides the lake into two basins. Access to the west basin is a dirt road opposite Bachelder Street off Amherst Road on land owned by the Department of Natural Resources. An informal dirt ramp is suitable for car top boat and canoe launching.
The lake is relatively shallow with a maximum depth of 13 feet. The 2.5 miles of shoreline are relatively undeveloped, with only ten residential dwellings. Aquatic vegetation is very heavy and the bottom is a mixture of gravel and muck. Most of the shoreline is forested.
The ten species observed, listed in order of abundance, include bluegill, golden shiner, pumpkinseed, largemouth bass, yellow perch, white sucker, chain pickerel, brown bullhead, black crappie and yellow bullhead. Growth rates of largemouth bass, pickerel, yellow perch, black crappie and pumpkinseed are above average to excellent. There is a large forage base of golden shiners.
