CT Beach Pond Boat Launch Parking Changes

DEEP has restricted the parking lot at the CT Beach Pond boat launch to parking for boating* and fishing ONLY. There is no longer parking for trail access. The parking lot will be staffed this year on weekends, and holidays and will be spot checked daily. Please note that individual cars will not be randomly ticketed or towed, unless the owners are observed or it is verified that they are not legitimately fishing or boating. There will also be an increase in ENCON patrols.

*BOATING INCLUDES KAYAKS AND CANOES. IF YOU ARE KAYAKING WITHOUT A TRAILER, PUT A SIGN IN THE WINDOW OF YOUR VEHICLE THAT SAYS ‘PADDLER’. THIS BOAT LAUNCH IS COMPLETELY FUNDED BY A FEDERAL GRANT FOR BOATING AND FISHING, THAT IS WHY THIS LOT IS RESTRICTED TO BOATING AND FISHING ONLY PARKING.
