About West Lake/Abbey Lake Flood Control Site

The West Lake/Abbey Lake Flood Control Site on West Street in Sandisfield offers boaters a unique experience in the Berkshires. West Lake is readily accessible by vehicle, and paddlers or motor boaters (small trailered with minimal HP gas motors) can enjoy a quiet hour or two on the lake. The entire shore is undeveloped except for the dam and parking area, which includes a large field that is perfect for an afternoon picnic. Ambitious paddlers can take the 0.8-mile portage trail to the beautiful Abbey Lake, where they can enjoy an hour's paddle around the shoreline, completely immersed in a wilderness environment.
