About this Location

Keiser Pond is part of the Keiser Pond Wildlife Management Area. The pond is on Keiser Pond Road and Harveys Hollow Road. There is a public boat ramp on Harveys Hollow Road.

The Keiser Pond Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is owned and managed by the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department (VFWD). The WMA consists of 69.2 acres of land surrounding the pond in the towns of Danville and Peacham, Caledonia County, Vermont. Access is via the VFWD Fishing Access Area located on the south side of the pond. Approximately 30 acres directly south of the parking area, across Harvey’s Hollow Road, is accessible by foot. Two other parcels are accessible by watercraft, or by walking a short distance down Harvey’s Hollow Road and Keiser Pond Road. The remaining parcel on the north side of the pond is accessible only by watercraft via Keiser Pond. The management goals of this property are to preserve and enhance the existing aquatic and terrestrial habitats.

Keiser Pond (33 acres) is a site for the Vermont LoonWatch annual survey. Birders are encouraged to volunteer as often and whenever they are able. See Join LoonWatch for details.
