RIDGEFIELD, CONNECTICUT - LAKE MAMANASCO

Mamanasco is a Ridgefield name that applies to a lake, a hill, a ridge, a mountain, and a road.Mamanasco Lake is Ridgefield’s largest body of water.The meaning of “mamanasco” is grassy pond.

In 1716 settlers thought the Mamanasco Lake was a great place to store water for a grist mill.The Mamanasco Mill (paper mill) was still operating almost into the 20th century.The remains of the paper mill can still be seen at the end of Pond Road. Some thought Mamanasco was created by beavers damming up the outlet.

The lake is the center of many recreational activities including swimming, fishing, sailing and ice fishing. There is a beach on the western shoreline and is the Mamanasco Beach Club, a private beach operated by the Eight Lakes Community Association.

There is no gasoline motors allowed on Lake, but there are plenty of row boats and canoes and kayaks.The town of Ridgefield and the DEP has teamed up and created a program to restore the lake, because the habits of all residents using lawn fertilization, cleaning agents and septic maintenance are affecting the condition of the lake.This program is called the Mamanasco Lake Improvement Fund (MLIF).
