About Lake Armington and the Lake Association


Lake Armington sits at the foot of Piermont Mountain, fed by its streams and natural springs.  Small and relatively shallow it has only 143 acres with a maximum depth of about 32 feet. Its waters test in the top 2% cleanest lakes in New Hampshire.


Lake Armington's water flows into neighboring Lake Tarleton from a dam outlet at its northeastern end, and from there into Eastman Brook through Piermont, NH then onward to the Connecticut River.


Preserving the pristine water quality of the lake, and the watershed, is the major concern of Lake Armington Association members and friends, and focus for our programs.

About Lake Armington Association (LAA)

The Lake Armington Association was organized in 1972 to preserve the quality of the environment of Lake Armington and surrounding land, promote enjoyment of the Lake for recreation, rest and relaxation, and encourage good feeling among those who enjoy the beauty of the Lake area. We have a 40+ year history of lake stewardship through hands-on programs and educating lake-goers.

2. Educate its membership, the community, and the general public on the proper environmental preservation and use of Lake Armington and its surrounding land,

3. Assist in and support the work of federal, state and local authorities in protecting Lake Armington's ecology with respect to water purity and its natural populations of fish, water birds and other wildlife.

4. Educate its membership, the community and the general public using the water body about the boating rules and regulations, both state and local, pertaining to Lake Armington, and encourage all to comply with them.
