Site Description: 

Take-out at the developed state boat access in Barton Cove. From here it is a 3.5 mile portage around the dam to a steep put-in off of Popular Street.

Alternatively, those wishing to utilize the Power Company's free shuttle should take-out at the Barton Cove Campground/Boat Rental location just upstream.

More Info: 

For the Barton Cove shuttle service, groups with more than four boats are asked to call one month in advance to plan ahead for portage dates. On most days, portages will be provided within 15 to 90 minutes of the boater's telephone call. Paddlers should have all gear unloaded and wait by their craft. More information on this service can be found here.
