Tully Lake is a great place to canoe, kayak, or hike. Go all day and bring a picknic lunch, swim suit, hat and sunscreen. There are many small islands to stop at to rest and swim. Paddle the lake north, then for an added paddle, go up Tully River. Look for wildlife in the 1250 acres of public land and water. On windy days, paddling can be a bit more strenous as the wind goes over the open lake.

Tully has 2 waterfalls to hike to as well. Doanes Falls and Spirit Falls. Spring is best as water level is highest, though season is beautifull. In winter, bring you snowshoes and cross country skiis too.

To camp at the Tullt Lake Campground, get in contact with the Trustees of Reservations.

Directions:

There is a boat ramp, picnic area and restrooms at the recreation area off of RT 32 at the Royalston/Athol line. RT 32 is off of RT 2A in Orange, MA. Go during the week to avoid summer weekend crowds. There are very few people there during the week. Enjoy one of our favorite places to paddle.
