West River, 48 Salmon Hole Ln, Jamaica, VT
Great event on a beautiful 2-3 river with easier alternatives and other activities. The whole weekend takes place in Jamaica State Park. We’ve got 3 campsites (Fri-Sunday night or Monday if you want to stay), all a short distance from the shuttle.
For about $25/day the park service loads you and your boat into a truck and runs you 3 miles up the dirt road. No racks, cars, resetting shuttle, just paddle, eat and adjust your gear, ride, repeat.
For those not inclined to paddle all day, the park includes a rail trail to walk or bike up to view the paddling and hikes to waterfalls.
We’ll do group breakfasts Saturday and Sunday and, for those that want, join the famous low country boil on Saturday night. Plan on helping with cooking but getting a filling, high fat, high carb breakfast that will get you started right.
No refunds unless the event gets cancelled, but you can give or sell your space to someone else. First come first serve and first to pay get first choice of campsites and parking at the campsite if either of these become issues. Profits will be funneled back into the weekend for shared food, fuel etc.
Nights get a little wild but with most folks being paddlers things settle down at a reasonable hour.
As for paddling, it’s mostly 2 similar to Mongaup, with 1 class 3. On route i.e. following someone thru the main line is pretty straightforward, but things get exciting off that main line.
