Otherwise known locally as Comet Pond. A small, very pristine - clean and clear water, pond. Most of the time you can see the bottom, even when it's 15+ feet down. Access via boat ramp - no swimming allowed at the ramp. There is usually a porta potty.

Depending on how fast you paddle and how much you putz it takes about an hour to go around the pond. Most of boat traffic you will encounter are fishermen. Be careful not to block the ramp for too long when putting in, and actually you can easily put in off the rocks to the right side of the ramp. Watch for fishing lines as you launch. If you go counter clockwise about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way to the other end it can get quite shallow - rocks stick out of water depending on level, some just below. Once you round the other end and head back there's none that I've noticed.

I have often seen patrols visit the parking lot, seems fairly safe.

Directions:

About a half mile east of intersection of Rt 62 and Rt 68, boat ramp is on the left. You can drive around the circle to drop off your gear, but park in the lot.

There are a number of invasive plants that can be carried from pond to pond and can live on a boat for weeks.... Please help keep the pond free from damaging plants that can destroy the beauty of the lake and take a few minutes to clean your boat or even let it dry in the sun for a few days.
