Buckley-Dunton Reservoir - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip

Report Type: Destination Report
Nearest City: Becket, MA
Difficulty: Easy

Description:

A man-made upland lake in the October Mountain State Forest, Buckley-Dunton seems far away from civilization, there being almost no buildings visible aound it - only woods and Berkshire hills. It is usually empty except for a few outboards with fishermen, some kayaks and canoes, and maybe a recreational rowing shell. Two beaver hogans are closely approachable. Good for a quiet afternoon of lazy paddling.

Accommodations:

There is nothing but a boat ramp at the lake. Lee has tourist facilities, and an interesting road-house restaurant called the "Dream-Away Lodge" which can be reached by continuing on Becket Road and turning left on County Road.

Fees:

None

Directions:

Take Mass Pike to Exit 2, Lee. Go east on Route 20 until you hit a stretch of concrete pavement. Turn left at end of concrete on Becket Road, which goes steeply uphill. Follow to Buckley-Dunton sign at utility buildings. Turn left on bumpy but paved access road. Park at boat ramp.

Contact:

Don't know of any unless October Mountain State Forest has something.
