You can just drift with the flow or race like the wind and beat 2 hours. Either way, this is a nice piece of the CT River and a rustic piece at that. Many places along the way to stop for a picnic lunch. We went down with some very young scouts and nobody had any trouble keeping the boat pointed downstream. The launch is small and there isn't a lot of parking. There is a beautiful campground in the Barton Cove area but it belongs to the power company and you have to have some pull with them to get in. If you can't get in, it is well worth the day trip anyway. This is a pretty rural area on both sides of the border so I would think there are plenty of camping opportunities around.

Directions:

The launch is on the East side of the river just off RT. 63, less than a mile South of the Vermont-Massachusettes border.
