Just spent one of the most relaxing, beautiful weeks with my family. Most days we were the only people on the water yet were fortunate enough to share this amazing piece of nature with the loons, the fish and a bald eagle.

Great relaxing with nature. You can fish here, but won't catch too much. Bring your canoe!

Every time we go here, we wonder where everyone is. We even tried visiting on Fourth of July weekend and still it was quiet. We love to kayak over into the little alcove and play with the friendly frogs. The call of the loon is...More

Pitcher pond is about 20 minutes from Camden but a world away. Nearly half of the three mile long lake is undeveloped. There is little boat traffic except on weekends during the summer. The lake is surrounded by woods and gives a sense of seclusion...More
