Schoolhouse Pond is the best freshwater swimming hole in Chatham. This 23-acre natural kettlehole (a shallow body of water formed by retreating glaciers) pond has an average depth of 20 feet and a maximum depth of 47 feet. Transparency is good, the bottom is composed primarily of sand, and aquatic vegetation is sparse and mostly underwater.

Schoolhouse Pond is popular with families because it's convenient to catch a quick swim at the end of the day. And, it's only a short distance from the Chatham Bike Trail. There are lifeguards during the season and a designated swim area.

If you have a small boat or canoe you can launch it from here. (Electric motors only - no internal combustion engines are allowed.) Unfortunately the town of Chatham only allows residents (with a beach sticker) to park their cars here but you can park on the street nearby.

Directions: Schoolhouse Pond is located just south of Queen Anne Road, west of Goose Pond, and northwest of the Chatham Municipal Airport.
