Lake Linganore is the largest private Lake Community in the State of Maryland. Established in 1968, Linganore was coined the ‘new town’ upon its inception. Lake Linganore members enjoy access to 4 private lakes, 2 beaches, 3 pools, 8 tennis courts and 30 miles of scenic trails! There are also 4 basketball courts, 12 Tot Lot’s and 3 rec fields available for sports activities. Linganore is home to an array of wildlife including: whitetail deer, raccoons, beavers, owls, bald eagles, foxes, coyotes, black bears, whooping cranes and many more!

Did you know the bridge that crossed Linganore Creek used to be covered? There are only 3 surviving covered bridges in Frederick County today. According to Harry Richardson, a well-known artist and Linganore neighbor on Quiet Cove Road, bridges used to be covered in the mid-1800s to protect the wood planks from the weather. Today we cross a lake, but in the 1860s, Linganore was only a creek where many millers built gristmills (mills for processing grains into flour) and sawmills along the creek. 

Lake Linganore is the largest of the four community lakes (seven were originally envisioned) and it has 13 ½ miles of shoreline. Beaches along the lake are provided in the villages of Nightingale and Coldstream. Boat racks can be leased annually at Coldstream Beach, Nightingale Beach and near the village of Aspen. Lake Merle is the second largest of the four community lakes and also has a small beach area on its eastern end. The remaining two lakes are Lake Anita Louise, located in the village of Pinehurst, and Lake Marion, the smallest of the four lakes, is located near the entrance to Woodridge. A Maryland fishing license is required for anyone fishing in Eaglehead lakes along with your Lake Linganore Association ID card.
