The first thing you may notice is the color of the water, a deep tea-color typical of the Pine Barrens. Natural tannins and acids leached from cedar trees, coupled with the naturally high iron content of surrounding soils, stain the water this deep reddish-brown. It may also leave a slight stain at the waterline on your boat, which is easily washed off. Lake depths generally average three to six feet.
