Scargo Lake, also known as Scargo Pond, is a 60 acre natural kettlehole pond with an average depth of 25 feet and a maximum depth of 48 feet. Transparency is very good, extending to 16 feet. The bottom is composed of sand and rubble. Aquatic vegetation is scarce. The 1.3 miles of shoreline are moderately developed with beaches and permanent residences. The pond has an outlet to Sesuit Creek and Cape Cod Bay during high water periods. The terminal moraine of the glaciers retreat lies to the south, forming Scargo Hill, and resulted in numerous boulders on the southeast shoreline.
