Lake Willoughby is a lake in the town of Westmore in Orleans County in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, United States.

The lake's southern end is surrounded by the Willoughby State Forest. This state forest includes Mount Pisgah, Mount Hor, collectively "Willoughby Gap".

In 2010, Yankee magazine named Willoughby as the third best lake in New England.
Willoughby Lake has a public beach that stretches 0.4 kilometres (0.25 mi) on the north shore of the lake, or in the zone of the lake outlet. Another public beach is located at the bottom of the South Bay of the Lake. The village of Westmore is located on the east side, at the confluence area of Mill Creek which drains the waters of Long Pond. Many cottages and houses are located on North-East bank of the lake.

  • This is a great location for fall foliage. There are two access points to the lake, viz the North Beach and the South Beach, both offering slightly different but equally spectacular fall colors...

  • Paddle boarded from the South Beach put-in, couldn't have been easier access, and the water visibility was Caribbean-esque.
