Recreation Management Plan

Paddler near Percy PeaksThe Connecticut River Recreation Management Plan represents an updated and expanded discussion of recreation-related issues raised in the 1997 Connecticut River Corridor Management Plan.

Focusing on recreation issues of river-wide significance in New Hampshire and Vermont, this overview is based upon discussions by the Connecticut River Joint Commissions and its five local river management advisory subcommittees. Each region created its own distinct plan, yet many of the same themes emerge and are reflected in CRJC’s overview of the issues and opportunities that are important throughout the Connecticut River valley.
