Cedar Lake

The town of Chester owns Cedar Lake and maintains two public beaches on its shore. The main beach, on West Main Street, has a 50,000 square foot swimming area. The park at the shore is named Robert H. Pelletier Park in memory of the Chester resident who was the Head Lifeguard for more than two decades. The area includes seasonal lifeguards, picnic tables, a pavilion, grills and a food concession. The smaller beach is located on Cedar Lake Road. It is unstaffed and has no designated swimming.

The beaches are accessibly by permit only. Non-residents must display a park pass on their vehicles. Daily passes for non-residents are not sold.

*Parking is limited.
