Kayaking Stump Pond / Mill Pond Westboro MA


On August 16, 2012, we decided to go kayaking for the first time in Stump Pond in Westboro MA. This is also known as Mill Pond or the SuAsCo Reservoir. The reason it's known as stump pond is that it is FULL of stumps. That's because back in 1968 when they made this reservoir they left all the trees in it. So over the years the trees have fallen down and decayed - but there are still a lot of stumps from where they were. In some parts, being here is like trying to carefully kayak through a maze. You can barely fit between the stumps.

Here are our 52 photos from kayaking! This was my 19th trip in my Venus 11.

We saw a family of swans, multiple painted turtles, cormorants, geese, ducks, and a ton of fish. The fish are very friendly and a whole school of blue gills was hanging out at the boat ramp!
