We own a house with access to the pond. It is beautiful in all seasons. it even has a part of the Appalachian trail going past upper Goose Pond. Fall leaves are breath taking.

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.

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
