This tranquil pond is well sheltered and is a wonderful place to be when April 1 and fishing season comes.

Getting there

From the intersection of County Route 6 and 7 in Mineville, follow County Route 7 toward Elizabethtown. Continue for about 3.5 miles to a fairly large dirt pull off on the left and park here. 


From the parking area, cross the road and go over the guardrail. There is a faint pond access path located here that goes down to the pond. The pond is a wonderful spot for a short paddle, and is a popular fishing destination. There are no motors allowed, and the pond is usually calm and sheltered.

  • Type of launch: dirt
  • Type of carry: a narrow path on a steep downhill


Shoreline fishing is very limited, but searching around for a clear area may yield a location.

For boat access, use the carry down from Lincoln Pond Road. Bass are seen in this pond and best to catch by casting toward shore and reeling back to the deep waters.

  • Fish species: northern pike, smallmouth bass, perch, panfish
Northern Pike, Small Mouth Bass
  • This tranquil pond is well sheltered.
