I was able to locate it on the topo map that I downloaded from this site. The location is
N 41 deg. 54.907'     W 072 deg 41.656'.

When I zoom in I thought I would get more detail on the water depths and surrounding terrain.


That would be NE topo by JohnM ?

There is not much lake depth (nor trail) data available for free - so little or nothing to use to build mapsets.  The NE topo mapset used USGS NHD hydro data (from 24K topo maps) - so the detail on shorelines should be about the best there is.  The mapset used a 20' contour interval throughout the 48 States so it is somewhat under contoured for CT.  He also used an elevation grid with 1/9 of the values other map authors are using so the landform detail is more general.
