I’m going to be in and around Stowe, VT 7/4 weekend and know nothing about places to paddle there. I’m seeking some suggestions for interesting down river trips or lake/pond areas. Will bring a C2 which can be either kevlar or royalex, depending on suggestions for 2 experienced paddlers. Thanks in advance.
You won’t be too far from Burlington…check out Lake Champlain. I know there is a launch and parking right in town, by the park.

Some varied options from the Stowe area to Lake Champlain in the Burlington area:
The Waterbury Reservoir: http://www.vtstateparks.com/htm/waterbury.cfm
Lake Elmore: http://www.vtstateparks.com/htm/elmore.cfm
The Lamoille and Winooski Rivers: http://www.vtpaddlers.net/paddle/almanac/index.php
is an opportunity for many miles of north flow
They can probably make some suggestions. The water’s pretty low right now.

I just paddled the narrows of Lake George between Northwest Bay and Silver Bay. The lake is 32 miles long and there are camping & picnicing spots on the islands along the way.
Here are some pics of the trip:
I found a guide who was willing to do a private tour and he provided everthing I didn’t have with me (boat, paddle, dry saks, lunch… He was a terrific guide. I believe he also does white water.
