This is a site for launching boats from trailers. Boat ramps can normally be used to launch canoes and kayaks but please do your best to keep the boat ramp clear for boat trailers.
Description & Overview:
Potowomut Pond is a small, 19 acre pond with a DEM Fishing Access Site on the east side. The shoreline here is gravel and very suitable for launching hand carried boats into the pond. Some of the shore of the pond has been built up with houses, but much of the shoreline is wooded. It is a long narrow pond and if you paddle up to the north end you can explore a little ways up the Hunt River. This pond is stocked with trout during the early spring.
This site provides access to the following water bodies in the Hunt River watershed: Potowomut Pond.
