Sometimes the Tufted Duck is on EAST WAUSHACUM. Continue on Gates Road till you get to the intersection with Camp Ground Road (straight/left). Follow Camp Ground Road (steep uphill) till you see Newell Hill Road on the left. Follow Newell Hill Road till you get a view of East Waushacum on the right. Park just beyond the fence and walk out onto the very small beach and scope the pond from here. Another vantage point is on the opposite side of the pond: continue east on Camp Ground Road, taking a left onto Fitch Road then another left on Sweat Hill Road. As the road descends, wathc for a dirt road on the left. This leads to a small beach on the eastern shore. Both ponds are good for a variety of waterfowl in fall and spring. (submitted by Mark Lynch).
