A friend of mine recently took over a canoe rental business (http://www.mainstreamcanoe.com/)on the Farmington River here in Connecticut. He offers both shuttle and rental, but what I didn't now is that he also has 3 small primitive campsites along the river for $10 per person per night. I didn't see the sites, but he says they are private, quiet and just off river.
The Farmington offers some really nice class 1/2 river travel, water levels are excellent now and the fishing for trout (all catch and release) is outstanding.

very cool. Thanks. I think this fall we'd like to take the grandsons for a canoe trip. The Farmington being close to their house is ideal.

Good to know! We've used a different shuttle service, but the Farmington is great for a paddle with my kiddos. I'll be sure to check out Mainstream next time.
