Overview

Overnight on the Connecticut River at a quiet campsite having only canoe and kayak access. There are designated spots for tents or folks can share the open sided Adirondack shelter. This is a primitive campsite (no running water) though there is an outhouse. Participants need to bring their own water (a gallon is recommended per person) and food (2 lunches, dinner, breakfast and snacks). The first day will require 7 miles of paddling - with a break for lunch - before making camp. After a leisurely breakfast, 8 more miles of paddling will bring us to the Barton Cove takeout. Life Jackets are required to be worn on the water. Participants are responsible for providing their own boats, camping gear and food as well as transporting all in their boats.
