Hand Launch sites on Church Pond, Osgood Pond and Jones Pond allow paddlers to obtain access to all three waters and Jones Pond Outlet.
Osgood Pond may be accessed from the Osgood Pond Hand Launch and Parking Area. The launch also provides access to the Osgood River, Jones Pond Outlet, and Church Pond in the nearby Paul Smiths College Easement Lands. The western, northwestern, southeastern and northeastern portions of the shoreline are privately owned and contain permanent and seasonal residences. Motor boats use Osgood Pond and portions of the two rivers.
There are two primitive tent sites on the banks of the Osgood River and three lean-tos are located on the south shore of Osgood Pond in the Paul Smiths College Easement Lands. The Osgood River has two primitive tent sites on the east bank (river right) of the river which can be accessed from the Osgood Pond Hand Launch via Osgood Pond.
