Adams Lake

Adams Lake is a 29 acre hard water spring-fed groundwater drainage lake, located in the Town of Stockton, about five miles west of Amherst. It is one of the deeper lakes in the county with a maximum depth of 44 feet and an estimated volume of 502 acre-feet. The bottom consists primarily of marl with some sand. The lake has an intermittent inlet and a small outlet known as Bear Creek. The length of the shoreline is approximately 0.8 miles. Substantial residential development has been increasing over the last twenty years. Fish species present in the lake include trout, largemouth bass, and panfish. There is public access to Adams Lake on the north side with a parking area and a boat ramp.
