One of my favorite places to paddle in Massachusetts is Pottapaug Pond on
The Quabbin Reservoir, but unfortunately there has been a recent ban on canoes and kayaks because of fear of invasive water species being introduced to the reservoir.

Canoeing on Pottapaug Pond is like being in the deep woods of Maine.
It feels remote, the landscape is mostly pine and fir trees on a rocky shoreline with a few islands scattered around. You hear and see loons, eagles, otters, Canada geese and if you’re lucky enough you might see a moose. There are many coves
to explore and the fishing is good.
