Rafters will find white water Eden in Berkshires

When the Bear Swamp Generating Station in the foothills of the Berkshires releases its 1.7 billion gallons of water, it turns the clean, clear Deerfield River into a white water paradise. And your gateway to that paradise is the Berkshire East Mountain Resort in Charlemont. Rigorously trained rafting guides will take you, whether you are a newbie or an old pro, on a rafting tour you will never forget. Tours range from the mild – a family-friendly float down easy white water – to the wild: Class III and IV rapids known as Dragon’s Tooth and Terminator. Trips, running from April through October, include picnic lunches or barbecues, photos, and plenty of time to enjoy breathtaking scenery.
