This is a partial/incomplete page as I have not yet explored Billings Lake.

The main feature here is obviously the 97 acre Billings Lake owned by the DEEP as a Bass Management Lake. The state operates a boat launch here with a concrete ramp and a dirt lot for about six vehicles.

  • Open 6:00 a.m. 2nd Saturday April to last day February.
  • Largemouth & smallmouth bass: 12″ to 16″ protected slot limit. Daily creel limit—6 bass, only 2 may be 16″ or greater.

There are several small islands in the lake with at least two that have fire pits.  Swimming seens to be popular from the rocky outcrop east of the boat launch though the DEEP officially prohibits use of the boat launch for swimming purposes.


The land portion of Billings Lake is a southern parcel of Pachaug State Forest adjacent to some land owned by the Town of North Stonington.  It seems likely that there are some rough trails here that likely include old woods roads.  There also appears to be a nice rocky outcrop east of the boat launch that should have some good views.  There is one claim of a nature trail around the lake.
