I took my boat down there today and did some laps. There was also a trailer full of canoes and about five of them on the water full of summer camp kids. Boating is definitely fine down there. In fact, I talked to a little old lady to who said they used to have a full dock and rent boats.
There are no swimming signs though so roll practice with wet exits maybe frowned upon. There were however campers that came out of their canoe just sort of walking around in the pond. No one seemed to care.
From the places that I checked the bottom was mostly gravel. The west side of the pond was fairly shallow, 3-4 ft. in most places. The east side of the pond was much deeper in the middle, deeper than my 220 cm paddle could reach.
