Rent a canoe or kayak from the Contoocook River Canoe Co. A great option for families is to rent and put in to the Contoocook River at the company’s beach, paddle up or down the river as far as you want and return to the beach. An easy two-mile paddle upriver will bring you to Daisy Beach, “a great beach for swimming and picnicking.” Reservations are highly recommended. On Thursday evenings the company offers an evening paddle with put in from their beach only, 5 to 7 p.m., and rental rates for all kayaks and canoes $12 each.
