Moosup Pond is located in the town of Plainfield. It is a natural pond in the Thames River Drainage Basin. Its water level was raised slightly by a small dam. The watershed is 726 scares of undeveloped woods, residential development and some agricultural land. The pond is fed by Tyler Brook from the north and drains east into Snake Meadow Brook, a tributary of the Moosup River. The shoreline is partially wooded with residential development around much of the pond. A town beach is on the southern shore.

The transparency of the lake is clear with visibility of 11 ft. in the summer. The bottom of the lake consists of sand, gravel, coarse rubble and mud. Fishing should be seasonally fair to good for trout. Fishing is also reportedly fair for yellow perch, brown bullhead and sunfish.
