DEEP: Beverly's Marina

Beverly's Marina / Boat Launch at Bantam Lake
Morris, Connecticut
DEEP has purchased the Beverly’s Marina property which consists of 2.82 acres, 558’ of lake frontage and a 9,172 square foot structure.  It also includes a ramp for launching boats, boat slips and parking.  DEEP purchased the property from the current owner, Bantam Lake Properties LLC.

The purchase enables DEEP to accomplish multiple objectives on this designated Heritage Lake:
  • to secure modest public access to the state’s largest natural lake,
  • provide an opportunity for an enhanced Environmental Conservation police presence,
  • provide environmental education opportunities about the lake’s ecology,
  • and work closely with other stakeholders in managing the lake’s natural and recreational resources. 
DEEP has historically provided and will continue to provide financial assistance for weed management and Environmental Conservation Police Law enforcement on the lake. 
DEEP looks forward to working with community members and would appreciate your comments on the Draft Management Plan.  Please submit your comments to
