Boats at Lincoln Pond Campground

Lincoln Pond provides the opportunity for primitive, island, or "developed site" camping. Large enough to accommodate motor boats, but sheltered from most harsh winds, this facility maintains a bathing beach and provides a very popular canoe, kayak and rowboat rental area. Some sites are in remote areas and do not offer flush toilets or portable water without going back to main part of campground. Three sites are boat access only.
