Kayaking & Canoeing

Water recreation

Take to the Water

A stay at the Preserve comes with guest access to the crystal-clear waterways of the Wood River Pawcatuck Watershed, a magnificent place to enjoy kayaking and canoeing. The watershed features 57 miles of rivers, with most ideal for flat-water paddling.

These watersport experiences are perfect for families and groups, or for simply gliding through the water in contemplative solitude. We’ll provide all the equipment you’ll need for a great day on the water.

Available seasonally; weather permitting. All participants should know how to swim. Enjoy on your own or with a Watershed Guide.
