The Hitchcock Lakes are located on Southington Mountain in Wolcott, Connecticut. This private lake community is home to approximately 350 families. The lake property is owned by the Wolcott Land Conservation Trust and managed by the Hitchcock Lake Improvement Association.

The purposes of The Hitchcock Lake Improvement Association (HLIA) are to:

  • Preserve and enhance the natural environment and recreational value of Hitchcock Lake (the “lake”) and its habitats.
  • Provide safety policies for all lake activities, including compliance with safe boating and water laws and regulations in accordance with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.
  • Maintain a close relationship with the town of Wolcott and the Wolcott Land Conservation Trust, Inc. (“WLCT”) regarding lake management.
  • Inform Wolcott residents and HLIA members on pertinent lake issues, and sponsor activities for residents of the lake to promote a sense of community, cooperation and support for the lake and its environmental quality.
  • Raise revenue to accomplish these purposes. 

Life is great at the Lake
