CT River Trip Cromwell to Essex

I’m planning a Veteran Friend canoe/kayak trip down the CT river from Cromwell to Essex in Connecticut. Staying overnight at Hurd State Campground at the end of June.

Looking for launch sites, parking, interesting spots, and resupply points so Army buddies can catch up and relax. Thanks for the advice.

Have you looked
at the Connecticut River Paddlers Trail website?
