Squantz Pond State Park is nice paddle location for a 1/2 day or longer paddle. Although it can be quite noisy by the State park and you may encounter powerboats or JetSki's. One side of the large pond is populated with homes and the other side is virgin forest. On a scale of 1-5 I would rate this place 2.5.
$9-14 entry fee
