Boating and Watersports on the Lakes of Pittsburg is the best of summer vacation fun.

Pittsburg and its Connecticut Lakes offer great boating opportunities. Whether fishing, waterskiing or just cruising, our lakes are beautiful and scenic. Watch the fireworks by boat on the Fourth of July on Lake Francis or troll for lake trout in the deep waters of First Connecticut Lake. Our lakes are free of ice from early May until November and have great access and launches.

Tubing, kayaking, sailing, swimming, or just sitting on deck under the blazing stars listening to the cry of the loons...it simply doesn't get any better!
