Waterbury Reservoir Outpost

Take in the stunning scenery of the Waterbury Reservoir from a canoe, kayak, standup paddleboard, or tube. Our outpost is at the lake's edge of the Waterbury Center State Park. We'll provide all the necessary equipment, including lifejackets and paddles, as part of the boat rental fee. No advanced booking is accepted for this activity, arrive anytime between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM for a 2-hour rental.

Waterbury Reservoir has many users. It's all of our responsibility to be respectful of each other, the reservoir, and the wildlife. There are two year-round 5 mph/ No Wake Zones, which, with the protection by the 200 foot law and right-of-way laws, provide areas for quiet users. Please try to stay in these quiet use zones. Be mindful of motorized boat users, especially when not in quiet user zones, around boat ramps, and Elephant Rock.

Elephant Rock is a popular area for all users but the landscape becomes very narrow at this part of the reservoir. This means the channel for motorized boats is reduced significantly. Please use extreme caution while passing through this area.
