General Information

Description - *This information was provided by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection*

The pond, which is the central feature of the park, was originally constructed by a pioneering family named Day. The water from the pond turned a large overshot waterwheel that powered the "up and down saw" of the family sawmill. Park visitors today will find only stone foundations as reminders of those colonial times. Day Pond is an attractive area for fishermen since the pond is stocked with trout.

Attractions - Day Pond State Park offers pond recreation as well as great picnic facilities.

Recreation - Around the park, there are good opportunities for hiking, pond fishing, and swimming.

Climate - The climate of this state involves a moderate amount of humidity, heat and cold. Summer highs reach 90 degrees F with low temperatures near 65 degrees. Evenings near the water can become cool and light jackets and sweaters are recommended. Winter temperatures average in the mid thirties during the day and in the teens at night. Rarely do temperatures dip to zero, especially in the southern portion of the state, where the water influences the more temperate weather.

Location - Off Route 2: take Exit 16 in Colchester. Follow Route 149S for 3 miles, and then take a hard right onto Peck Lane. Take a left onto Day Pond Road.
