Hop Brook Lake is situated in the midst of a growing suburban area. The 536 acres of undeveloped public land at the lake is managed for both recreation and for the benefit of forest, wildlife, and water resources.
The dam at Hop Brook lake is located 1.6 miles above the point where Hop Brook flows into the Naugatuck River. Completed in 1968 at a cost of $6.1 million, the dam is a part of a network of seven flood control reservoirs built by the Corps of Engineers in the Naugatuck River Basin.
