Most of the pond lies on private land while the a small portion butts up to a state park accessable by boat from East Grand Taverse Bay. The shallow lake often connects to the bay by a small stream, usually on private land but occasionally meandering onto the parkland. Small panfish often flourish in spring and fall but the pond often becomes to warm in the summer. Carp have also been sited. Says Matt
Having a wonderful time at Petobego Pond is easy. A lake
nearby is Birch Lake, and Traverse City State Park is a glorious place to go to. Petobego Pond is close to Jellystone Park Camp Resort where you may have lots of joy.
