Bentley Pond

Bentley PondBentley Pond is an 86 acre impoundment on the Plover River ten miles northeast of Stevens Point. The dam was built to provide power to a woodworking mill. The pond has a maximum depth of ten feet, and the bottom is covered with a heavy layer of silt. The estimated volume of the pond is 133 acre-feet. The Plover River is navigable above and below the dam, and the pond is very scenic; however, public access to the pond is limited to County Hwy Y. Northern pike and panfish make up much of the fishery.
