Directions to Access Points:
From the intersection of Route 9 and Route 9N in Elizabethtown follow Route 9N toward Westport. Continue for just under a mile to Lincoln Pond Road on the right. Follow here to Lincoln Pond and the State Campground.
There are ample areas for shore fishing on this pond. You can choose from the campground at the southern end, off Lincoln Pond Road on the western side, or from Kingdom Dam Road on the north. Perch, panfish, and bass are easy enough to catch from shore, but the bets fishing is from a boat.
Car top boat access is available in all the areas you can do shoreline fishing, small boats with outboards can be launched from the state campground, day use fee will be required. The pond is popular for Tiger Muskie and northern pike even though the fish are of no substantial size.
