Deer pond is a very easy access from Massawepie Road and can be launched upon in a couple different locations. Once on the water be sure to scour the shore for seasonal wildflowers. This is one of the more popular paddling waterbodies in the area.
From the intersection of Route 30 and Route 3 in Tupper Lake follow Route 3 toward Piercefield. Drive through Piercefield into Gale and locate the Massawepie Boy Scout Camp on the left. Continue down this road for 3.5 miles to the pond on the left.
Type of launch: Roadside
Type of water: Deer Pond is well protected from heavy winds and ill conditions, but does get a strong south wind on certain days.
