About Greenwater Pond Boat Launch

Greenwater Pond is an 88-acre pond nestled between the Massachusetts Turnpike and Route 20 in Western Massachusetts. The small unimproved boat launch is on the southeastern corner of the pond, with informal parking along the shoulder of Route 20. Much of the shore is developed with houses or roadways, with little undeveloped land. The pond is exceptionally clear and deep. Paddlers can enjoy a 2.2-mile paddle around the shoreline. If you prefer motorboats, the pond is popular with small motorboats and jetskis, and one can often find water skiers riding the waves. Fishing is common on the pond, with bass, perch, and stocked trout, among other species. In the winter, ice fishing is a popular endeavor.

While enjoying the lake, visitors can see the Berkshire Hills to the north and south. In the fall, boaters will see amazing colors looking into the hills. The Appalachian Trail crosses the lake at the north end by the dam, so visitors may see a hiker heading north to Maine or south to Georgia.

Overall, Greenwater Pond is a beautiful place to get on the water and enjoy being outside during the fabulous Berkshire summers.
