Slocums River Professional Review and Guide

"A trip down the Slocums River is a beautiful study in contrasts. Paddlers start in an intimate, slow-flowing river, float to the wide-open, sandy spaces of Demarest-Lloyd State Park, plunge into the perennially choppy waters of Buzzards Bay before finding refuge in jewel-like Allens Pond, a salt marsh rich in beauty and wildlife tucked behind the dunes.

The trip is fun and demanding, easily occupying a fine summer’s day. Deliciously uncrowded on weekdays and in fall, the Slocums is a hidden treasure easily found. Attractions: Quiet river paddling, bird-watching, salt marsh, Demarest-Lloyd State Park (sandy beach), swimming, fishing, openwater paddling in Buzzards Bay."
