West Washacum Pond is a 120-acre great pond located off of Gates Road in Sterling. The pond bottom is comprised of rocks and gravel with areas of mud and aquatic vegetation common along the shoreline and shallow shoals. The shores of West Waushacum pond lie within the Department of Conservation and Recreation water supply protection lands and are free from development.
There is a car-top dirt-ramp boat launch alongside the road. There is roadside parking only at the launch. A gravel parking lot for the Central Mass Rail Trail is a short distance across the street from the pond.
