Kayaking in the Waterbury Reservoir

July 29, 2015

With rain showers passing through the area frequently this summer, mountain biking is not always possible due to wet trails.  Another factor that might dissuade you from riding bikes, is the heat.  The solution to these problems is the kayaking in the Waterbury Reservoir.

 Views of the famous Camels Hump can be seen just above the dam at the south end of the resivoir.

 Don't like kayaking? Try stand up paddle boarding, it's just like walking on water.

 

 Nothing like scooping up a paddle full of sunshine on a hot summer day.

 

 For the more adventurous, free camping sites are all along the reservoir.  They are first come first serve so be prepared to do some searching for a nice site.

 

 

 

 Although few might realize it, The Reservoir is the ninth largest body of water in the state of Vermont and was created in the 1930's by the CCC as a flood control project to protect towns and villages along the Winooski River Valley. From late spring to early fall the Reservoir is maintained to a surface area of 850 acres and has a maximum depth of 100 feet.
