Moose Pond in Bridgton and Denmark Offers Four Season, Lake Region Vacation Fun

Real Estate Agent with Anne Plummer and Associates

Whether you own a camp or cottage, or are renting a condo or four season contemporary at water's edge, Moose Pond offers up four seasons of fun and recreation and is truly a lake that the whole family can enjoy.

Stretching from Bridgton and Sweden in the north to Denmark in the south, this 8 mile ribbon of water lies in the shadows of Pleasant Mountain and has been a destination for vacationers and campers for years.

The northern and southern ends are wilder and shallower, providing settings for wildlife and bird sightings, as well as great canoeing and kayaking. Powerboats are welcome too, usually carrying fishermen looking for action from bass and pickerel.

The deeper water fishery is out in the Main Basin, the widest part of Moose Pond, south of the 302 causeway. Here the deepest part of the Pond reaches 70 feet and there are magnificent views of Pleasant Mountain and the Shawnee Peak ski area. This is the area to water ski, tube, and use that wakeboard.

Beyond the Mountain Road bridge in the south the character of the Pond changes back again, to a quieter, shallower body of water better suited for smaller boats and paddle craft, wildlife and bird watching, and fishing.

In the winter enjoy snowmobiling and ice fishing on the Pond, or take advantage of the lake's proximity to Shawnee Peak Ski Area, visible from most any place on the Pond. Sunday River skiing is less than an hour away and shopping the outlets in North Conway, NH is within an easy half hour drive.

The surface area of Moose Pond is 1697 acres in all, with a maximum depth of 70 feet and a mean depth of 22 feet. The quality of water here is rated "above average" and it is consistently monitored by the Lakes Environmental Association, headquartered in Bridgton.
