Shaw Pond is a warm water pond that has a bottom composed primarily of muck, with some gravel along the point on the western shore and some rubble and clay along the eastern shore. Aquatic vegetation is relatively abundant and highly varied. Development is moderate, but shore fishing is virtually precluded due to private ownership of much of the shoreline.
Public Access Board ramp managed by the Division of Forests and Parks provides access. This single, surfaced ramp is located on the southwestern shore of the pond and can only accommodate shallow draft boats, car-top boats, and canoes. It is adjacent to a parking lot with space for approximately 10 vehicles.
