Ponkapoag Pond in Massachusetts

Trip Overview

Really beautiful location. Fun to putt around, very low maintenance kayaking.

Saw some cool birds, lots of fish, and a big-ass snapping turtle. The water is crystal clear with lots of vegetation. Plenty of airplanes which got on my nerves, but so close to Boston what can you do?

I had fun and would recommend the location. I also would recommend bringing some sun screen.

Fees:

no, or at least we didn't pay

Directions:

I do want to point out the other reviews mention a private way that is not a good location to launch from. Directly next to the Temple, (on the right) is a parking lot and grassy launch area.
