Quaboag River in Massachusetts

Trip Overview

Beautiful, easy trip down the Quabog River in a Sea Eagle 370. It's a very quiet river (little traffic and few houses). There is a fair amount of wildlife visible. We saw at least 8 blue herons, a bald eagle and numerous turtles.

We did a 6-mile trip downriver from the boatramp in Brookfield ( to the Route 19 parking area (

It took us 3 hours of slow paddling. There is little current so one could easily go upriver. You can also take out about a mile earlier at Long Hill Road in West Brookfield.


There was a portapotty at the boat ramp
