Province Lake Association
ABOUT THE LAKE
Province Lake is
located in southern Carroll County, New Hampshire. The lake is
approximately 1008 acres and has a maximum depth of approximately 17
feet so there are no coldwater fish species in the lake. Three towns
border the lake: South Parsonsfield, Maine and Wakefield and Effingham,
As with many lakes in New Hampshire the shoreline is almost completely
ringed with cottages and there is an abundance of water craft on the
lake. Although not as congested as Lake Winnipesaukee boat traffic is
increasing yearly. It is amazing that the water quality is very good
and there is NO infestation of milfoil or other exotics.
ABOUT THE ASSOCIATION
The PLA is a group of people interested in maintaining the
quality of Province Lake. It is a non-profit organization of
approximately 100 members paying dues of $25 annually. There are many
volunteers who provide water testing, weed watching, loon observation
and other valuable services to the association.
Oh yes, we do have a few snapping turtles in the lake.
