Welcome to Memphremagog
An international, fresh-water glacial lake, Memphremagog is almost 32 acres long with an area of 5,966 acres and a maximum depth of 351 feet. Approximately ¼ of the lake is in the U.S. and the rest is in Quebec, Canada. Newport City and Derby are located on the lake’s southern shore, where you’ll find the Newport Marina, the Newport City Dock and Gateway Center, Pomerleau Park, Gardner Park, Prouty Beach & Campground, Eagle Point Wildlife Management Area, Bluffside Farm, and some areas along the Newport-Beebe Recreation Path run parallel to the lake. The town of Magog, Quebec, where the lake is known as Magog, occupies its northern shore. Lake Memphremagog offers numerous activities throughout the year. In the summer, enjoy swimming, witness a sailing regatta, learn something new in the floating classroom aboard Northern Star’s cruise ship, The Spirt of Newport. In the winter, the VAST snowmobile trails cross the lake, and ice fishing shanties make an appearance along the shores. Whether you’re in a kayak, canoe, sailboat or powerboat, the boating is spectacular, so bring your fishing poles, water skis, and sunscreen and make a day of it. When hunger strikes, you have an abundance of options to choose from, some just steps from the shore and many more along Newport’s Main Street.
