Bog Pond is somewhat off the beaten path and located within the Savoy Mountain State Forest. It has good roadside parking and launching area. The hand built dam that impounds Bog brook was built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Beavers have recently added to its height which has raised the impounded waters. The pond is surrounded by hemlock and spruce trees and mountain laurel and blueberry shrubs. The pond contains several bog islands and in addition to the usual pond flora is inhabited by both pitcher plants and bladderworts both carnivorous plants which happened to be flowering at the time of visit. It also is reported to have sundew plants another carnivore. Beaver activity is very evident and there are several active lodges on the pond. Nesting Canadian geese, a great blue heron, kingfishers, and pine sparrows were observed.
