  Raritan river
  Posted by: jjmish on Aug-31-13 8:54 AM (EST)

"I'm interested in touring the Raritan River but it appears that most, if not all, the launch sites are municipal boat ramps that require a permit. Is there anywhere else that I can launch on the Raritan which doesn't require a permit?"

Paddle it all the time and no permits required. Plemnty of side of the road launches from Clinton to Perth Amboy. Try the confluence of the north and south branches. launch at any bridge. Plenty of parks and Deleware and Raritan canal acces to raritan and millstone rivers.

The baykeeper as mentioned before has a pamphlet showing the river and possible launches.

I wouldn't go paddling if I had to pay.

Checkout Cheesquake creek, Morgan creek, south river, farrington lake, Amboy beach. Plenty of launch sites not designated in pamphlets.
