Salmon River State Forest, East Hampton, CT

The next CPAPS paint out will be at Salmon River State Forest in East Hampton. We were at the Comstock Bridge area last September, but on the other side, from Rte. 16, there are additional river views that are spectacular, especially the unique flat rocks in the river. In addition, there are bathroom facilities, at this location. With this central location and some with the prediction of good weather, Iā€™m hoping we will have a good turnout.
