Paddle across Lower Goose Pond, a mountain lake anchored by steep ridgelines that also support a remote section of the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail.

This is a nice place to paddle and probably, also to fish, judging by the number of fisherman there. I only went kayaking. It is not far off the Mass, Pike, exit 2. There are two ponds here joined by a narrow channel and probably...More

It is a piece of heaven, a beautiful lake where boating is peaceful and quite, no motors on the lower lake. It really has not changed in hundreds of years and while here you can still imagine that you are alone in the world.

Visited on an early Sunday morning and there was still parking available for the boat launch. There were only a couple of other people out on the water at 7am so it was nice and quiet. Easy to get to and pretty pond.

An excellent place to paddle and fish with a canoe or kayak. The water quality is very clear throughout most of the year. If boating isn't your thing, then maybe the hiking trails by Goose is. You can day hike in or go to the...More

Great place to bring your kayak. Some good swimming areas also. Getting your boat and in and out can be tough on a busy day. Small launch area and minimal parking.

Beautiful reservation in the Berkshires. A great place to kayak. Clean and beautiful. Unfortunately we didn't see much wildlife, but we still had a great time kayaking.

Kayaking Goose Pond is almost like having a private lake - you run into very few other boaters. Go all the way to Upper Goose Pond by boating through the tree lined channel and then you'll have even fewer encounters with other boaters. We watched...More

Liked it all! Upper Goose Pond Cabin is a must see....right on the Applachain Trail....crossing over the Mass Pike after leaving the car at the parking lot on route 20 was very cool. Didn't like that we had to go back to our car after...More
