Too many people
Jul 2020 • Friends
Super busy. So many fisherman and swimmers. No place to park. The road to get there is narrow and dangerous. Must bring your own trash bag there are no garbage cans.

Way too many people (animals)
Apr 2020
This place used to be quite. Now you have way too many people .Garbage in the parking lot garbage in the lake in the woods. Some D shot a swan a few weeks back. Should be residents only. People really are stupid. When the parking lot gets full (which it does any nice day) people just park on the road. I used to love this place but like anything that is wonderful people will f it up. Have a nice day.

moderate hike, no facilities, carry in carry out
Jul 2019 • Family
My husband decided to take us, 3 younger teens and an out of shape wife, out for a hike on a hot July day. White Pond is an easy to find DEC property with 2 boat launches and fishing dock. We did not have an opportunity to use the pond. We did see people swimming but there is no beach area making entering and exiting the water challenging.

There were some people boating, paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. There is ample parking, NO facilities and it is not maintained perfectly yet there are signs of attempted improvements on the trail.

The trail starts at the parking lot, goes over a small damn and then enters the woods surrounding White Pond. Much of the trail is not well marked. Parts are blocked by fallen, upended trees or debris. There is evidence of blockages being cleared. There are times where you can see neighboring homes which is a bit odd.

There are places that get quite muddy.Using a walking stick helped with negotiating the various steep, muddy, hilly areas. We did not find the bugs overwhelming but see how that could change with rain/humidity. There were plenty of birds, squirrels, chipmunks, snakes, frogs and toads to keep us on our toes. The trails ends on White Pond Road which is quite dangerous to walk back to the parking lot. The road narrows and winds making it hard for cars to see around the turns. There were plenty of speeding cars on this back-road.

Considering we had to back track to find the trail again (markers are missing for most of the trail), brave the treacherous walk on the road, tolerate the heat and humidity and trudge through some muddy spots, we made good time on the 2.5 mile hike/walk.- about 1.25 hours.

Locals only
Sep 2016 • Solo
Our lake used to be a hidden hideaway where only the locals went to. You got arrested back in the day if caught swimming in the lake because it's New York's drinking water. We have a hot spot called the point that no one knew about now it's bombarded by city people. The lake is infested with snakes. It's not nearly as pleasurable and relaxing as it used to be. Hopefully one day it will be permit only for residents only.
