Canoe River Campground

137 Mill Street
East Mansfield
(508) 339-6462

Canoe River Campground consists of 34 acres of mostly wooded land surrounding a 10 acre body of water called Mill Pond with the river channeling through it. Mill Pond is appropriately named because it has been the home of several types of mill industries throughout the years. Its rich history begins with Ephraim Leonard who, with support of slave labor, excavated this pond to be used to mine bog iron. His foundry is considered to be the oldest industrial site in Mansfield. When Mill Pond was exhausted of iron, Ephraim Leonard had bog iron shipped down by mules on tipcarts from Massapog Pond in Sharon, Massachusetts. Mill buildings on the property were then used by sheep farmers to wash wool.
