Reclaimed in 1997, this 73-acre pond is home to the brook trout, a wild population that is augmented by stocks by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The pond, connected to Lower St. Regis Lake, is 45 feet at its deepest and averages about 20 feet.
There is a lean-to with picnic table on the shore. No camping.
Black Pond contains native strain brook trout. Bait fishing is prohibited on these waters.
Don’t forget to investigate Little Black Pond, a small bay on the east side of the pond.
It’s accessible by a hand boat launch at the end of Keese Mill Road, 2.5 miles west of the intersection of Keese Mill Road and NYS Route 30. There is room for five cars.
There is a handicapped accessible parking area with a path to a small dock.
