Coventry Lake is located within Mystic Country and is also known by its indigenous name Wangumbaug Lake, which translates as “crooked pond.” It was originally settled in the early 18th century and served as a popular site for farmsteads, later becoming a popular New England vacation destination at the turn of the 20th century. Today, the natural freshwater lake is located within the city of Coventry and spans a surface area of 373 acres, offering seven miles of visitor shoreline. Swimming, sailing, water skiing, and windsurfing are popular on the lake, along with bass, walleye, trout, and carp fishing. Nearby in Coventry, Patriots Park hosts the annual Coventry Fest and is home to a number of museums and historic sites.
