“Fun even if not Hot and Sunny”
Review of Paddle the Pemi

Paddle the Pemi
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Just spent a week in the lower part of the White Mtns, NH - Plymouth, Holderness, Ashland.

While i was mostly looking to play some golf, my two sons aged 18 and 20 wanted to do some outdoor stuff.

We found Paddle the Pemi, offered theu Ski Fanatics in Campton NH.

Nice friendly staff, who re-assured the chicken non-swimmer in me.....

We visited in late June 2013, and it has not been particularly hot nor sunny..... So i wasn't sure what it would be like....

It was a lot of fun, never felt worried, or in danger.... The river is quite shallow in most places, and only swift moving in a few spots. You actually had to stay alert, so as to avoid thw rocks in many areas... Nothing dangerous, but the bottom of the kayak scrapes, and you could get stuck.....

We were actually lucky, in that with the recent spate of rain, the water level was pretty high, .....

We reached a train trestle bridge, and the boys actually go on shore climbed the bridge, and jumped into the river...... I normally wouldn't have allowed it, but a few other teens had been jumping and it looked quite safe.....

It lasted about 3.5 hours with a good nit of paddling, nothing crazy, hut steady.

Definitely worth it for a half day activity.
