Mill and Murray Ponds

Paddling

How to Get There: From the intersection of County Route 6 and 7 in Mineville, follow County Route 7 toward Elizabethtown. Continue for about 3 miles to a faint dirt access road on the right. This is a very rough road; drive slowly down it for about 100 feet for parking.

Overview: From the parking you will have to carry a short distance on well used foot trail. It is not marked but the area gets many camping parties and it is pretty matted down. Once on the pond you will be able to relax and enjoy the super calm waters of the pond. Murray Pond is the small pond to the east of Mill Pond, which resembles more of a bay. This can be accessed from Mill Pond. 

Type of Launch: Dirt

Type of Carry: About 200 feet, easy and with good footing.

Type of Water: Well sheltered, calm, no motorboats

Fishing

Shoreline Fishing:

Limited, but if you walk south along the shore you can find a few spots to cast out. There is more room for shoreline fishing on Mill Pond on the south side.

Boat access:

This pond is very similar to Tanaher Pond its neighbor to the south. There is only this one access for a boat. Canoe and Kayak are best or a small boat with a trolling motor or motor no more than 5hp. Northern Pike in this pond are quite small but still fun to catch, but the only real way to catch them is from a boat in the center of pond.

Fish Species:

Northern pike, perch, panfish, bullhead

Birding

This is part of a cluster of ponds which draw a lot of migrating birds and boreal species.
