About East Waushacum Pond
The water at East Waushacum Pond is relatively clear, with visibility extending to 10 feet or more except during summer algae blooms. The bottom is composed primarily of soft muck, but there are significant areas of sand, gravel, and rocks, particularly surrounding the small island near the western shore.

The shoreline is heavily developed with summer camps, most of which have been expanded and converted into permanent homes during the past few decades, but the southern side remains wooded and quite scenic thanks to a railroad track.

The pond offers canoe and car-top boat access via a shallow draft dirt ramp next to the town beach, but parking may be impossible for other than town residents during the summer swimming season.
