Comeford Dam Portage

Canoe/Kayak Access

blank dot

Take out river left by boat access. Walk along dam access road before descending the steep, mowed embankment adjacent to the dam. Descend stairs to a path. Walk downstream toward a gravelly beach. Those with portage carts may wish to continue duwn the dam access road which eventually loops around to the put-in. This route is longer, but less steep. Warning - river levels can rise unexpectedly here - by as much as 3'! Do not leave unattended gear close to the river, and listen for sirens.

This site is part of the Connecticut River Paddlers Trail, which includes campsites, access points, and portage trails along the river.
