This is a nice small pond to kayak/canoe on. It seems to have a plant infestation, but as long as you're ok with that it's a fun place to paddle around and explore. I recommend putting in at the boat launch located at the intersection of School and Maple. Enjoy!

Really fun kayaking if you like to slowly meander up a narrow, winding river. Lots of wildlife and it seems pretty remote in places. It goes on for quite a ways so you can make a nice relaxing half day out of it. Good parking and easy put in by the pond.
