Donnell Pond Professional Review and Guide
"A pleasant paddle on a deep, clear-water pond with sandy beaches and access to panoramic views atop nearby peaks. The 15,000-acre Donnell Pond Reserve is one of 29 Public Reserve Lands spread across Maine. The reserve is tucked between two scenic byways (US 1 and ME 182) and encompasses a constellation of crystal-clear lakes, secluded ponds, and accessible mountains with panoramic views across the region, including Acadia National Park’s prominent peaks.
Donnell Pond’s undeveloped eastern shoreline features sandy beaches, pocket coves, picnic areas, fourteen authorized campsites, and access to more than 15 miles of hiking trails. This is an excellent place for a family outing, or to explore the picturesque downeast landscape when visitors overwhelm Acadia."
