Lake Massapoag Is An Underrated, Clean Natural Lake Hiding In Massachusetts

There are many natural wonders in the Bay State, but some are overcrowded and, frankly, a bit overrated. Lake Massapoag is an underrated natural lake hiding in the town of Sharon with some of the cleanest water in Massachusetts. While sitting beside this 353-acre body of water is relaxing in itself, this is also a wonderful spot for fishing, swimming, sailing, ice fishing, and so much more. The small beach is a great way to stick your toes in the sand without having to visit a popular spot, or to escape into nature when the temperature drops. No matter what time of year it is, Lake Massapoag is a hidden gem worth finding in Massachusetts.
