I love the Battenkill! You can have a great time swimming, tubing, fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful setting.

Every Fourth of July a group of my friends and I cruise the river. It's clean and beautiful. It's always a blast & locals are so friendly. Fishing is great too!
