Fishermen are treated poorly. Many animal rights activists. I have been hassled several times. Says William Hodge
On Ashuelot River you come across the close by Ashuelot to Hinsdale portion. This is a type II-IV, 3.5-mile-from-beginning-to-end segment of whitewater. Paddlers on this segment of Ashuelot River should boast some know-how in paddling. Whitewater kayaking and rafting could get risky, so check conditions prior to departure. This lake is so wonderful. A good location
to camp here at Hastings Pond is Wagon wheel Camping Area, and you can race go-karts at nearby Arnone's Family FUN Center.
