Tully Lake is a 1300-acre flood control project completed in 1949 located 80 miles west of Boston and 50 miles northwest of Worcester.  This US Army Corp of Engineers project is defined by the 218 acre Tully Lake, created by the dam, where you can catch catfish and pickerel. Facilities include a picnic area,restrooms, a boat ramp and a wildlife viewing area. There's miles of hiking trails of all levels on the Tully Trail, a 22-mile loop trail that encircles the largely undeveloped Tully Valley in the North Quabbin Region of Central Massachusetts. From the summit of Tully Mountain to the cascading waters of Doane’s Falls, the trail connects some of the region’s most scenic properties and views. The Tully Trail connects to the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail which stretches from Connecticut to New Hampshires Mount Monadnock. While out this way you might want to visit Doanes Falls and Royalston Falls, both managed by the Trustees of the Reservations...not one of my favorite organizations as they often over charge for entrance into their Reservations. They also administer the adjacent campground.

Tully Lake is managed by the US Army Corps of Engineers.
