Description

A long, SE-facing slab standing above Hitchins Pond (which is part of the Bog River), by the southern access to Lowe's Lake.
There are several campsites along Hitchins Pond, but be aware this is area is so popular that those sites are often filled during summer weekends. Indiscriminate camping is NOT allowed; you must be well away from water, trails, and roads in order to set up a camp, and in this region, finding a legal site can be difficult or well-nigh impossible.
There is a private access road for a Boy Scout Camp nearby, but this is off-limits to the public.
Also note, the bear population can be meddlesome in this neck of the woods.

Getting There

Hitchins Pond is a popular canoe camping destination, a frequent stopping point for paddlers on their way to Lowe's Lake.
Hiking in requires a 2 1/2 mile from Cty Rt. 421 or a 3-mile paddle up the Bog River from the end of that same road.

Canoe approach "warning" ... I tried the canoe approach after a 2 week drought only to find the final end of Hitchins Pond (not Lake !!!) impassable due to swampy, muddy conditions. The canoe route is pretty, scenic and popular … I suspect it would take at least an 1 hr probably closer to to 1 hr 30 min to paddle the route (each way). The hiking trail to the dam is very flat and smooth and could be biked easily. Jul 11, 2018
