Stark's Pond is a boating lake in the town of South Park. It was a popular location for children to visit for camping, fishing, kayaking and ice-skating when the surface freezes over. The pond was destroyed when a Wall-Mart was built on top of it in Season Eight's "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes". Unusually, despite the basic design of the area in earlier seasons, after its appearance was redesigned and the animation was improved, the old appearance was later used again. The boys bring up Stark's Pond to comfort Kenny in "Kenny Dies", saying they'll go camping there once he's better. Butters usually comes and plays alone in Stark's Pond, as revealed in "Casa Bonita".


"Cartman Gets an Anal Probe"

Wendy wants to meet Stan after school at the pond, but when they arrive with Kyle they become caught up with trying to rescue Ike from the Visitors. Wendy suggests they use Cartman as bait.

Chef drives past awaiting first contact with the aliens, and with Cartman tied to a tree near to Stark's Pond they attract the mothership. It abducts Cartman but not before Kyle convinces Ike to jump to safety. Mr. Garrison and Mr. Hat drive past, agreeing what a strange event it is. Soon after, Wendy offers Stan the chance to kiss, but he vomits all over her. They then identify the food he threw up.


While camping out in the woods, Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny McCormick discover the thought-to-be extinct race of Jakovasaurs living there, and they tell Jimbo who is in his hut nearby.
