The nature scenery of Washington County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The starting point is not too far from Bennington. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling rivers. Whitewater paddling here in the Green
    Mountains is a great experience. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. A bit of exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great
reasons to come. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so don't forget that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.
