Big Pond is a gem of a paddling experience. It all begins by pushing off from a smooth sandy bottom and heading west (left) onto the pond. Deep green marsh grass lines the banks with a backdrop of pines. Jumping fish, probably trout, quickly break the calm surface; there are also salmon. Birds abound, with ducks being the most plentiful. We saw American black ducks, blue-winged teals, and northern pintails. Red-winged blackbirds are plentiful. To the right are thickets of bayberry and marsh grass. Big Pond is a must paddle. If you love to observe birds, your visit will be doubly rewarded. You can spend several hours floating among the small islands and observing the ducks. I like to imagine that the crew of Jacques Cartier in 1534 put ashore here and reprovisioned their ship with game and fresh water. That is very possible—just north of here is Campbell’s Cove, where it is believed that Cartier first saw the Island. currently offers topo maps from the entire United States. We plan to expand our topomap database in the future, however this map is not available at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
