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!

I was struck by how peaceful and breathtakingly beautiful this river was. My teenage girls and I canoed and kayaked down the river and it was absolutely gorgeous! Saw a beaver swimming along side us which was very cool. I was also surprised at the lack of bugs! Great trip!

I walked along this river in late September, the weather was lovely, the path was mowed, but I've never seen so many mosquitoes & other flying, annoying bugs. And I'm no bug-phobe -- usually pretty tolerant. I enjoyed the view but this kept it from being a delight.

Famous as one of the best flyfishing rivers in New England, the Battenkill also has many wonderful swimming holes (including one just under the covered bridge in West Arlington) and many spots for putting in a kayak or tube. Highly recommended on a hot summer day!
