Trail Descriptions

No trail exists. This small wooded preserve protects 2,000 feet of shoreline on Megunticook Lake. While no trail exists, you are welcome to visit and explore. Several spots along the shore provide access for fishing and watching wildlife on the lake. Large hemlocks and eastern white pines dominate the canopy.

Look for

- Red-winged blackbirds, common loons, and many species of ducks feeding along the wooded shore - Abundant wildflowers and ferns along the shore - Tall hemlock trees shading the forest’s understory


From Camden, take Route 105 inland for 3 miles, turning right into the Bog Bridge Boat Access parking lot, located on Megunticook Lake. The preserve is on Megunticook Lake on the opposite side of the bridge, a 500-foot walk across the bridge from the parking lot.


Donated in 1996 by the Bok family. Named after a Bok family caretaker.
