or Harvey Lake
is a lake
near the town of Barnet, Vermont
in Caledonia County
in the northeast section
, United States
. It was named after one of the original settlers of Barnet, Vermont
, Colonel Alexander Harvey. Although locally it has always been officially known as Harvey's Lake, it is officially named Harvey Lake by the United States Geological Survey
as genitive apostrophes
are rarely allowed in the names of natural features.
The lake is surrounded to the northwest by the town of South Peacham, Vermont, to the south by Mosquitoville, Vermont, and to the east by Barnet Center, Vermont. The northern side produces a small channel near West Barnet, Vermont that is held back upstream by a dam, owned by the town of Barnet. Most of the lakefront is now dominated by Harvey's Lake Park with its public beaches and picnic areas, and a private campground.
