Is kayaking or canoeing allowed at Orton Pond?

Amy Hotz

According to David Sprunt, kayaking and canoeing on Orton Pond is not possible. It is still a private pond and is not open to the public.

Sprunt managed Orton Plantation before it was bought in the spring of 2010 by Louis Moore Bacon. His family also previously owned the property.
