Public Launching Areas

Washington Pond

Boats being launched on Washington Pond are limited to carry in only. There is no ramp for trailers.  The public landing is located off Rt. 105 at the south end of Washington Pond between Billings Lane and Old Townhouse Rd.

Crystal Lake

Boats being launched on Crystal Lake are limited to carry in only. There is no ramp for trailers.  Also, no personal watercraft are permitted on Crystal Lake.  The public landing is located on Crystal Lake Road, 0.1miles from Youngs Hill Rd.


The spread of destructive invasive plant species from lake to lake has been shown to be caused by plant material that remains on the bottom of boats.  To prevent this destructive spread of invasives, Please use care to wash all foreign plant material off boats and trailers PRIOR to launching.

Help us keep our lakes invasive free. Also, please be a good citizen and carry out all trash from launching areas.  The town of Washington does not provide trash removal at public landings.  It is up to all of us to keep these public areas clean so we can all enjoy them.
