A longtime public access to the Connecticut River, the DeBanville family allowed paddlers to launch boats here for years. We stepped in to protect this site to make sure paddlers would continue to have access to the mouth of the Nulhegan River and the Connecticut River for generations to come. Today the area is part of Lyman Falls State Park, but Vermont River Conservancy still holds a conservation easement here, forever guaranteeing public access to the river.
From this small, grassy area, boaters can put-in and take-out canoes and kayaks. There is no parking here and no bathroom here. Those amenities are directly across the road at the Belknap Public Access.
This project made possible thanks to the support and partnership of:
From St. Johnsbury, follow Route 2 north through Lunenburg and Guildhall. Just after crossing the Nulhegan River and before the intersection with Route 105, there is a parking area on the left at the Belknap Public Access site. Park there, and access the Connecticut River by crossing the road through the open grassy area.
