Truesdale Lake  

South Salem, New York


This website is divided into two sections: an ongoing Events section and a more permanent Pages section.

Truesdale Lake is an 83 acre lake in South Salem, NY. It is the largest privately owned lake in Westchester County. It is surrounded by approximately 70 riparian (waterfront) houses and an additional 200 or so houses that have deeded lake rights to the lake through one of the lake associations.

There are three association beaches, three islands, lots of wildlife, multiple shared private boat launch properties, a strong community, and wonderful neighbors!

The lake is in the Town of Lewisboro in Westchester County. Houses are in the Katonah-Lewisboro School District. Elementary school students in houses around the lake go to Meadow Pond Elementary School while houses on Lower Salem Road and Stewart Road (part of TEA) go to Increase Miller Elementary School. All middle and high school students attend John Jay Middle School and John Jay High School in Cross River, NY.
