My gf and I had a wonderful experience here. The set-up is pretty charming and the location is in a great spot along both the West river and Connecticut river. Great for bird watching (herons!) and some fun spots along the West river for swimming.

The experience was exactly what we expected. We showed up, parked, quickly rented a canoe and got on the water. Two hours later we were back and we had a very good time! Definitely worth our time.
