One of the many lakes in western Massachusetts, Windsor Lake is one of the lesser known lakes in the area.
With its sheer beauty and family friendly activities, the $5 entrance fee (there is an additional fee if you park your RV or camper at their campground) is well worth it. If you are a resident you may also qualify for a parking sticker.
Despite its scenic backdrop, well maintained beach and convenient boat launch, Windsor Lake still remains one of the hidden secrets of the northwestern region of Massachusetts.
Since it is such a natural beauty, it is very easy to capture the beauty of lake Windsor.
The trees, plants and flowers at Windsor Lake highlight the beauty around you at every turn.
There are also two play areas for children, picnic areas and even a concession stand at the lake. And, yes, I so wanted to hit that pinata below.
Fishing and rafting or boating are popular activities at the lake.
There are also a variety of birds, insects and other animals evident at the lake.
