Tully Lake is a 1300-acre flood control project completed in 1949. The reservoir area is rich with natural beauty and outdoor recreation. A tents-only campground with 35 sites lies on the north side of the 200-acre lake. Adjacent to the dam, the Recreation Area offers picnic sites and a boat ramp with a 10-HP maximum. Twenty-three miles of hiking trails extend around the lake, Long Pond, and off-site to nearby waterfalls and scenic vistas. The lake is ideal for canoes and kayaks, which can explore the lake, the Tully River and Long Pond.
Tully Lake is located in north central Massachusetts, about 1.5 hours west of Boston. In Massachusetts, take exit 17 on Route 2, and follow Route 32 north approximately 6 miles through Athol and into Royalston. From New Hampshire, follow Route 32 south about 8 miles from the intersection of Route 119 in Richmond. Route 32 goes over Tully Dam and provides direct access to the lake.
