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.

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

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.

If you know about it you know. If you have never fished it, you should and be prepared with a large dose of humility and a real learning curve.

We took 2 hours to go down the river It was nice but the 2 hours trip did not go near any what I would call scenic area There are a lot of dead trees in the river It is also pretty hard to know exactly ( even approximately ) where you are and how long you still have to... More

Between Greenwich, NY and Arlington, VT the Battenkill is a great riverfor fishing, kayaking and tubing -- lots of fun year roud and many beautiful villages with several good resturants. Great for weekends away from the city!!
