Thousand Acre Swamp

Thousand Acre Swamp Professional Review and Guide

"A great place to spend an afternoon exploring coves and swamps with lots of woods and wildlife. Thousand Acre Swamp is a broad, shallow impoundment that is full of fish, beautiful views, and bald eagles that frequently soar overhead.

In addition there are reliable stories that one of the largest snapping turtles ever caught in Massachusetts, about 60 pounds, came from the marshy waters of Thousand Acre Swamp. What you will see on your visit is hard to say, but whenever you go to this isolated lake it will probably share some of its surprises with you. Perhaps even the cougars that some say they occasionally see along the shore."
