The Berkshires town of New Marlborough has a well preserved village center clustered around its central green. A residential and tourist community, it contains a part of scenic Lake Buel, Campbell’s Falls, where the Whiting River cascades down an 80′ drop, and Umpachene Falls. The Konkapot River, Umpachene River, and Whiting River, flow through New Marlborough, feeding into the Housatonic River. There are also several swamps and ponds, including Lake Buel on the Monterey line, and the Thousand Acre Swamp in the southeast corner. The swamp lies along the border of Campbells Falls State Park, named for the falls along the Whiting River. Parts of Sandisfield State Forest also lie in the town.
