The staff was very friendly and helpful and instructed us where we could paddle and what we might see. We went for the 2 hour kayaking. It was beautiful and I got our and jumped off the dock near the Marina. The West River was pretty shallow at the time but Connecticut River was better. My back is really sore... More

My gf and I had a wonderful experience here. The set-up is pretty charming and the location is in a great spot along both the West river and Connecticut river. Great for bird watching (herons!) and some fun spots along the West river for swimming.

For folks who like to canoe it is becoming harder all the time to find places that have canoe rentals. This place also rent kayaks.

I have kayaked in many locations along our camping travels. This has been one of the best. The staff was friendly. The location was perfect. It was a hot sunny day. I was able to find shade along the shore which made the heat easier to handle. Beautiful views.

The experience was exactly what we expected. We showed up, parked, quickly rented a canoe and got on the water. Two hours later we were back and we had a very good time! Definitely worth our time.
