The RDC Annual Ice Harvest

Every winter, long after the last guests have departed, a ritual takes place at RDC— the harvesting of lake ice. When the ice off the Deephaven shore becomes eleven or twelve inches thick (usually mid January to mid February) the work begins. In one week, 200 tons of ice are taken from the lake by a crew that includes many who have done the job for decades and a few who follow in their father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. The ice will fill the cottage ice boxes in the summer, keeping alive a connection between the camps and the natural environment that surrounds them. Story continued…

“We feel rooted within our own families as well as with those special friends we meet at this place. We are regenerated by Squam Lake’s natural wonders– fragrant pines, mountain summits, star-filled night skies, and haunting loon calls, to name a few.

Those of us lucky enough to spend some summer days at RDC share in a restful calm. We are certainly grateful for this unique place of simplicity and peace. I know we take this spirit with us when we leave Squam, counting the days until we can return”.
