Lussier County Park

Lussier County Park encompasses approximately 130 acres and 4,000 feet of public shoreline, providing direct access to Fish Lake. The park offers a boat launch facility and hiking trails, and is also popular for shore fishing and wildlife observation. Fish Lake, known as a kettle lake, is one of the largest and deepest lakes in the county at around 200 acres in size and 62’ maximum depth. It was formed when the last glacier retreated from the area, leaving behind a large ice chunk which melted and created a large depression. The lake contains Northern Pike, Largemouth Bass and Panfish.

  • A carry-in canoe launch is available at nearby Fish Lake County Park.
  • Boats using gas motors are prohibited on Fish Lake per Town of Roxbury ordinance.
Due to high water conditions and road closures, winter access to Lussier County Park and Fish Lake is ONLY available by traveling south off STH 60 on Barta Road and east on Schoepp Road.  Note that there is NO on-road parking for ice access to Fish Lake, all ice access must occur from the main car parking lot at Lussier County Park.
