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:
Union Pond is at the northern tip of Pascoag Reservoir but it is separated from the reservoir by a substantial earthen dam. So, this DEM Fishing Access Site boat ramp only provides access to the 11 acre Union Pond. The shore of Union Pond is largely forested except at the very northern tip where the pond ends in Pascoag Village and at the south end where the ponds end below the dam for Pascoag Reservoir. Outboard motors are not permitted on Union Pond.
This site provides access to the following water bodies in the Blackstone River watershed: Union Pond.
