Biscay is a long and narrow pond that covers 382 acres and has a maximum depth of 61 feet, with a mean depth of 39 feet. The water quality is average. Boaters can access it from the boat launch at the north end on Biscay Road. And from Biscay (correct pronunciation–biss-KEY), canoers and kayakers can paddle to several lakes and rivers. On Biscay Road you’ll also find the Biscay Pond Public Beach, a small beach with limited parking.
