Manchaug Pond is a 360 acre Great Pond located in Central Massachusetts in the towns of Sutton and Douglas. There are several islands and coves on this Picturesque boby of water that make it fun to explore. Recreational use is very high during the summer, with numerous power, sail and ski boats. A new dam was recently constructed and will allow for better control of the lake level. The Manchaug Pond Association was founded in 1967 to promote the welfare and optimal use of Manchaug Pond.
