Walden Pond (Concord MA)

When we Went:

We went to Walden Pond during the summer of 2003. On Walden Pond, Thoreau, Walden Pond Lives up to the history.


Walden Pond is located in Walden Pond State Reservation. It is an ideal location to go Kakaking if you want to go somewhere for the day or afternoon with others who aren't going to be kayaking, or if you are sharing kayaks. It is a great place to go kayaking, swinning, or to go for a walk/hike on the trails that surround the pond. It also has a nice picnic area.

When we went we were a bit uncomfortable with all the swimmers in the lake. We did enjoy the lake, exploring the shoreline, and the convenience of being so close to Boston.

Put In:

Walden Pond has a great boat ramp area and parking area. It is adjacent to the swimming area at the entrance to the pond area. From what we remember there was an admission fee for using the boat ramp area, but nothing more than 5 dollars or so. There were quite a few friendly Kayakers there.
