White Pond Multiple Use Area locator map

White Pond Multiple Use Area contains 276 acres, 125 of which include White Pond. There is a trail which runs from the parking lot on White Pond Road and ends at the road at the other end of the pond.

This property was previously a New York City reservoir and was transferred to State ownership. An old stone sluiceway runs from the dam toward the middle of the pond. Bass and sunfish often gather along the stones. The pond itself can become weedy in summer and large stones are submerged in piles along the roadside edge.

Facilities include a large parking lot, boat access, and an accessible fishing pier. Car-top boats and boats with electric motors are allowed on this pond. Fishing is permitted, but swimming is not encouraged. There are no other facilities at White Pond.
