How to Get There
From the intersection of Route 28N and Route 30 in Long Lake follow Route 28N east toward Newcomb. Continue for 4.4 miles to the access site on the left. Look for a DEC sign. Follow this short gravel road down to the parking lot.
The carry is an easy one as it is all downhill. It is a carry of only around 200' so a cart would not be necessary. The launch area is still very new and just opened by the DEC under a conservation easement with the land owners. The pond is long and somewhat narrow allowing for excellent wind protection, but it can still get a bit choppy during bad weather. Small bays and narrows on the NW end of the pond are a nice place to check out. You can proceed up and down Fishing Brook a very little bit if the conditions are right.
Type of Launch
Type of Carry
200 foot carry along a gravel path, downhill
Type of Water
Well sheltered and calm, there may be small motors on the small pond as it is essentially a private pond with public access. There is no access to shore from the pond other than the launch site.
