The township is just south of Jackman on U.S. Route 201.
It is the only improved road, except for about two miles of Hardscrabble Road on its town line with Johnson Mountain Township to the south.
Parlin Pond, the water body, is a two-mile long pond along U.S. Route 201 in the southern portion of the township. A hand-carry boat launch lies near the south end of the Pond in Johnson Mountain Township.
The 2430 foot Parlin Mountain is just east of the Pond. Smaller Bean Brook Mountain is to the northwest.
Parlin Brook (once Piel Brook) crosses the road at the boundary of Bradstreet Township and Parlin Pond Township.
The road from U.S. 201 leads west to Spencer Lake and the nearby former Prisoner of War camp that held German soldiers from World War II.
