Take the fragile beauty of a boggy marsh, mix in a pinch of the African Queen, and you get the idea of what it’s like to visit Agawam Lake. This trip is for those who have a bit of Lewis and Clark in their hearts. There are beaver dams to portage, a mile of narrow swampy channels, and aquatic plants so thick the water surface sometimes looks more like dry land. The reward is exploring a rare habitat overflowing with interesting plants and animals. Agawam Lake is a wonderfully natural place, one of the best and largest examples of a boggy marsh in the Northeast.
