This is where the University rowing team practice and hold their rowing regattas. While kayaking, In addition to being with nature, you'll encounter turtles sunny themselves, and herons. You get a view of the million dollar homes that line the shore.

You can't walk ON the water, but you can walk the towpath of the D&R Canal State Park, which runs along a good length of the lake. This is part of Princeton University's campus. As such, the University shares this resource with the community for...More

There's something special about this lake, it makes you feel calm. One has to be here more than once to enjoy the lake. The lake is completely owned and maintained by the University, but is open for public to row, kayak or do fishing, besides...More

It was exciting to watch the Princeton invitational regatta but hard to get a good place to watch from the banks of the river. Go early and secure a place on the bridge near the finish line for the best view.
