Navigable for almost thirty miles, The Ipswich River is one of the best kept secrets on the North Shore!

Its gentle waters run quietly through beautiful forests, fields and farmlands. Much of the undeveloped land along its banks is protected, including a wildlife sanctuary, scenic wetlands, and two state parks. Much of the river is accessible only by canoe, and is a paradise for birders and botanists alike. Stocked with rainbow and brown trout, it’s also a favorite with fisherman.
