Body of Water: Prong Pond, Greenville, Maine - Maine Gazetteer Map 41 C3
Directions: From the center of Greenville (Intersection of Lily Bay Road, Rt 6, and Pritham Avenue)
Drive North on Lily Bay Rd (towards Lily Bay state Park) for just under 7 miles.
Turn Right onto Prong Pond Rd.
Take first right (follow sign) down a narrow dirt road to the boat launch.
Note: This is moose country - go slowly! The dirt road to the boat launch is narrow and has BIG potholes. Be careful!
Parking: There are only a couple of places close to the launch that looks like dedicated parking spots. There are signs along the west side that says no parking, private property. Please remember to respect that. I was the only person there when I arrived ,but when I left there were a few other vehicles that people had just made fit in this area. A bit above the launch area is a separate parking area.
EEK I forgot to get pics of parking, sorry!
Launch: the boat launch is designed in a loop so that people can drive around then back their boats down the grooved cement ramp. The launch is wide enough for a vehicle and there was some space off to the side to 'park' my kayak while I parked the truck after unloading my kayak.
Wildlife: On my visit I saw a lot of birds including loons and red winged blackbirds. I saw beaver lodges and so much habitat that I imagine would be home to deer and moose. (The person who recommended this spot said there is often wildlife.) This place felt so untouched; I imagine a lot of wildlife calls this place home!
Notes: I LOOOOOOVE this pond! I was headed to the Moosehead area for a conference and was excited to possibly have the chance to paddle in that area. I had posted in one of the facebook kayaking groups I am in and asked if anyone had any suggestions and someone named James suggested Prong Pond.
I googled it and saw the shape of the pond and it seemed there were a lot of nooks and crannies to explore... my kind of place!
