Anderson Lake is a joint conservation project between Irving Woodlands and Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC). Originally, the lake and surrounding land were part of a private fishing club for Saint John industrialist CN Wilson. J.D. Irving, Limited purchased the land in the 1950s as part of larger land deal with the Wilson family. In 1980, DUC built a water control structure on the outlet of this lake to create water levels that would be ideal for breeding waterfowl, and the 83-hectare site was placed in our Conservation Program in 1996. Hikers and ATV users enjoy access to the northern shores of the lake, while the public fishes the lake for prize brook trout. Look along the northeastern shore for the remains of a purpose-built fishing boat with live wells built into the sides.
