Kayaking on Quacumquasit Lake - a.k.a. "South Pond" in Brookfield MA

Rating: One Star - I circumnavigated this lake counterclockwise for about an hour and a quarter. Water is very clear. Circular shape of lake leaves no coves to explore though. The shores are mostly developed and private.

  Put in at Lake Road
  in Brimfield MA.
Paddle around lake
  and return.
Estimated round trip
  distance = 2+ miles

The boat ramp on Quacumquasit Lake.

The Boston Kayaker just launched on Quacumquasit Lake.

Water clean and clear.

I will hug the western coast going south and then on the other side on way back.

I am now on the southern end of Quacumquasit Lake. I will start moving to the other side, the east bank of the lake.

Now paddling northwards, with the east bank on my right.

Pontoon boat.

A fake cat to scare the birds! First time I have seen something like this.

The YMCA cove.

The lake level control and lock.

These 2 ducks like hanging out here at the ramp.


Across the road from the ramp is the Quamcumquasit Wildlife Management Area.

The entrance to this wildlife reservation doubles as a parking lot for boat launchers.
