Long Pond Professional Review and Guide

"Nestled in the foothills of the Kinsman Range, this high-country pond offers hours of island exploring, wildlife viewing, and fishing. A paddle on Long Pond is like a trip deep into the wilderness. The shoreline is completely undeveloped, and its unspoiled islands and the surrounding Kinsman Range make it an exhilarating and special destination.

Early morning on the pond is often misty and calm, with the best chances of viewing wildlife like otters, beavers, deer, and moose. Afternoons are warmer, but the wind can pick up and make the water choppier. Early evening is always a pleasant time; the winds usually calm down so you can enjoy a peaceful sunset and maybe even catch a massive brook trout. And it’s hard to beat a sunset picnic on an island. Dog-friendly."
