Great East Lake is an 1,829-acre (7.4 km2) water body located in Carroll County, New Hampshire and York County, Maine in the United States. The lake is shared by the towns of Wakefield, New Hampshire and Acton, Maine. The lake serves as the headwaters to the Salmon Falls River, a tributary of the Piscataqua River.  The widest part of the lake is in New Hampshire. The lake narrows to the east in Maine, creating the First, Second, and Third basins.

Located just 90 miles north of Boston, with 12 lakes, and extensive biking, snowmobile, and hiking trails Wakefield is a favorite destination for travelers, some who have decided to make Wakefield their year-round home.

North & South Wakefield & Woodman are residential areas but... visit the many craft stores, antique & collectibles shops, and enjoy the regular yard sales of the residents.
