Beach Pond, Voluntown/Rhode Island
Beach Pond (372 acres) is a natural lake that straddles the border of Connecticut and Rhode Island. A causeway separates a shallow cove on the eastern section from the main lake body. Fed by three small streams, the lake drains west over a dam to create the headwaters of the Pachaug River.
