Low’s Lake

DSC_0301-Edit-960x600Part of the Bog River Flow, Low’s Lake is accessible by paddling up the Bog River followed by a short carry around a dam.  While there exists great camping along the Bog River itself, the rewards for paddling into Low’s Lake make it a worthy endeavor.

You can’t go wrong setting up camp on one of the islands – by night you’re treated to a perfectly clear sky and by morning, a postcard-worthy sunrise.  Take along some fishing gear as well, the bass love to bite in the morning and early evening.

Float the Milky Way.


For a unique star-gazing experience, all you need is a boat and a little help from mother nature.

A clear night with little or no wind makes for the perfect opportunity to push off from shore and find yourself floating inside a mirror of the sky above.

If you’re lucky, you can see the Milky Way reflected across the entire lake.

Start with the put-in at Low’s Lower Dam. Paddle through the Bog River and into Hitchins Pond. There’s a short carry around the Upper Dam and then you’re at the start of Low’s Lake. See the map linked below.
