About Laurel Lake Road Fishing Area
The Laurel Lake Fishing Area is a small, out-of-the-way location in Lee, MA, a prime fishing spot. Laurel Lake is a large, pristine lake in the Berkshires that is home to many species of birds and fish, along with many mammals that make their homes in the surrounding forests. This fishing area is on a small land bridge with the lake on one side and a smaller marsh on the other, making it a perfect place to quietly fish or watch waterfowl in this shallow end of the lake.
Located at the end of Laurel Lake Road right on the Lenox-Lee border is a small pull-off where visitors can park away from the water and enjoy hunting or fishing, swimming in the cool, crystal-clear water of the lake, or simply viewing the diverse wildlife that Western Massachusetts has to offer. This location is near Edith Wharton's ancestral home and Edith Wharton Park, which contains an easy meadow hike to lookout points that access Laurel Lake. While no parking lot is available for this fishing area, it is easy to find and on level ground near the water, making it a location for viewing wildlife accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
