Ride the Shetucket River

Due to the CoVid 19 pandemic, it is unsure if the Town of Sprague will resume the wildly popular “Ride the Shetucket” events for 2021.  Please check the town website for the latest information.

In the past, the activity occurred once a month, the first Saturday of each month (dependent on the natural water level of the river).  The Town of Sprague provided a free shuttle between the River Park and the Scotland Dam. Participants can put in any time between 10:00 and 12:00.  You can ride the river as many times as you wish during that time frame.  The ride is 4 miles long and takes approximately 2 hours.
