Barton Cove Campground
Located on a rocky peninsula jutting into the Connecticut River, Barton Cove is an ideal place to take a day trip or camp for the week. With a day-use picnic area, bathrooms, tent camping, and minimal automobile access, it is a peaceful place for families. At Barton Cove we take pride in preserving the enjoyment of tent camping. Shaded walks, sunsets over the Connecticut River, quiet paddling in plunge pools of ancient waterfalls, and viewing bald eagles are pleasures you can enjoy here.
Canoe/kayak rentals, bald eagles nearby. Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Northfield Mountain also provides canoe shuttle service around the Turners Falls Dam.
Each campsite has a picnic table, hibachi and fireplace. Showers are available near the ranger station, and there are two group sites available for larger groups interested in camping together. Two sites suitable for pop-up trailers or class C camper vans are also available. The sites have no utility hookups. Barton Cove Campground is open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. Scout groups can camp by special arrangement through November.
