A pretty early-morning view of Cushman Pond from the access point. McDaniels Hill looms large in the background.
Cushman Pond covers 32 acres and is located in Lovell, Oxford County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 10 D2). The public access point is found at the outlet by the dam right off Cushman Pond Road. Plenty of parking is available in the immediate vicinity. Be aware that motorboats are prohibited on this pond even though the unimproved sandy launch can easily accommodate trailered boats.
Clays Pond Road is closed to all vehicular traffic until May 15.
Clays Pond covers 21 acres and is located in Fryeburg, Oxford County, Maine (see The Maine Atlas and Gazetteer map 4 B1).
