The lake was formed in 1955 by Connecticut Light and Power for hydroelectricity. The land that was flooded to form Lake Lillinonah was virtually a canyon with extremely steep hills on all sides.   The shoreline of Lake Lillinonah is beautifully lined with primarily deciduous forests. Of the 45 miles of shoreline 43 are wooded. Lake Lillinonah is the winter home to as many as 40 Bald Eagles. Lake Lillinonah is a hidden treasure that has become a true asset for the towns adjoining the lake, regional residents, and the state of Connecticut as a whole.
