The Tobey Pond beach area is private, maintained for the benefit of Norfolk residents only by the Town under contract with Great Mountain Forest. Residents who use it must buy a yearly sticker from the Town Clerk’s office and place it permanently on their vehicle’s windshield. Stickers are available at the beginning of June. No entrance is allowed if the gate is closed, and no swimming is allowed unless a lifeguard is on duty. Hours are usually from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. but may vary if the weather is bad or if a lifeguard is not available. The beach area includes spaces for swimming, picnicking and fishing. Please see the full list of regulations linked from the righthand side of this page. For more information about yearly stickers, call the Town Clerk’s office at 860-542-5679.
