We attempted this trip but were informed by the park ranger that no boats are allowed on Quabbin that have not been powerwashed and tagged specifically for Quabbin. This is a zebra mussel control effort.
I have not personally paddled this area but have stopped to ask about fees and parking. I was informed that because the Quabbin Reservoir and Pottagaug Pond are for fishing, you must have a fishing license to paddle there or purchase a "one day license" from them for $5 whether you intend to fish or not. Also cost $4 a car to park and $2 per person to launch boat. Even for canoes and kayaks. Just wanted to share......
