What to Expect
The Zoar Gap trip meets at our base in Charlemont, Massachusetts at 10:30 a.m (Be sure to check your confirmation email for the exact meeting time of your trip). Please try to be on time, since we must work within the schedule of water releases. You will be required to read and sign a release of liability at this time. All guests will be required to wear a Zoar Outdoor issued PFD (Personal Flotation Device) and helmet. You will also be provided with a paddle. We raft a ten-mile section of class II and III whitewater on the Deerfield River in Northwestern Massachusetts. We put in below the Fife Brook Dam and finish the trip at our base camp in Charlemont, MA. The trip usually takes 6 hours, including registration, transportation to the river, swimming stops, a picnic lunch served on the river, and a slide show of your run through the biggest rapids. You should expect to spend about 3 to 4 hours on the river.

This trip comes with a picnic-style lunch, and a spread of chips & salsa, hummus or black bean dip, fresh baked rolls with choices of cold cuts and cheeses, as well as lettuce, tomato, condiments, and dessert and a drink. Lunch on this trip may sometimes be served later in the day due to water release times, weather, or other factors beyond our control.

We took our son here for his 17th birthday. He NEVER stopped smiling the whole time and we had SO much fun! Anna was a great guide! The snack break was great! I only recommend maybe adding a snack with some protein. Peanut butter crackers or PBNJ sandwiches? (We do a lot of

Thanks for your review and happy birthday to your son! We don't provide peanut butter or nuts in general because of food allergies, but your suggestion for something with protein is a good one. And yes, synthetic or wool clothing is best for the river as cotton keeps you cold when it's wet. Hope to see you again soon!

This was our third time bringing a group of 30+ Boy Scouts to Zoar for a day of rafting. Every aspect of the trip--all three times--has been perfect: from reservations and questions, to the guides and lunch, to having a great time on the river. Thank you, Zoar. We can't

It was an awesome day. Michael Parker was our guide, he was excellent. We had so much fun and laughed the whole way down and we did not loose anyone. Highly recommend it. Can't wait to go back with friends before the season ends.
