“A Pitchers Pond Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

This is one of the most relaxing vacations. staying on pitchers pond is a wonderful experience. We stay at the Pennell cabins right on the lake every year. The scenary is breath takingly beautiful. Our children love to swim, Go tubing, and feed the ducks. the ducks are so friendly they will eat out of your hand. This is a trip my family looks forward to every year. The owners of the cabin's are truely welcoming and the views and relaxation are well recieved.

“A different world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2009

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 even though it is only a few minutes from Camden and Belfast.
There is hiking available within a few minutes at Camden Hills State Park or a wonderful nature preserve along the Ducktrap River at Rt 52.
Unless you rent a cottage on the lake there is little actual access. Calling it a "beach" is incorrect. For those with access to the lake there is canoeing and kayaking, sailboating, great fishing, water skiing, etc.
For the best time of year try the fall. Tree changing season is even more quiet and is truly spectacular.
For those of us who know Pitcher Pond, it's a unique piece of heaven in Maine.
