Spent a couple of hours tubing down the Battenkill River. We put in up the road and then floated down across the NY border to get out of a very popular spot.

This stream has long been a "go to" destination for trout fishing, as well as being scenic. The river winds through portions of Vermont and New York....be sure you have the appropriate fishing licenses. Great day trip...take a picnic lunch and a blanket and find a good spot.

I liked the Battenkill Canoe livery their lessons and then their group tour of rivers in Vermont Inn to Inn. Only disappointment is that canoe trips can be "rained out." This happened one day.

Easy, fun, friendly. Great way to spend a half or a whole day. Different kinds of routes for different skill / adventure levels

Lovely to sit by, or take a canoe trip downstream from Batten Kill Canoe in Sunderland, VT. They will drop you off upstream and pick you up as far south-west as Shushan, New York for a reasonable fee. Better than paddling back up stream. They will also rent you a canoe. Lots of nature walks around the river in the... More

The trips never took as long as they said they would but we always have had a blast. We usually go once a summer when it gets hot. They drive you to the launch and pick you up at the end. Bring a picnic.

This is one terrific day tubbing with your family. Both of my children ages 8 and 12 enjoyed this day out. I found this to be a priceless value for a family to create forever memories.
