Recreation Survey

As part of the relicensing process Bear Swamp Power Company, LLC (BSPC) is conducting a survey to gather information regarding participation in recreation activities at the
Bear Swamp Project. 

There are 6 formal recreation areas located at the Bear Swamp Project:
  • Bear Swamp Visitor Center
  • Fife Brook Fishing and Boating Access Area
  • Zoar Whitewater Access Area
  • Zoar Picnic Area
  • Fife Brook Overlook Hiking Trail, and the 
  • Bear Swamp Public Hunting Area

Other, non-Project recreation facilities are also located near the Project, including the Shunpike Put-in/Take-out Area, and the Dunbar Brook Take-out. These non-Project facilities are not owned or operated by BSPC, but are popular Deerfield River access and take-out points for boaters and tubers. In addition, there are numerous informal access areas on Project lands that are used by the public to access the Deerfield River. 

The Bear Swamp Project area relevant to this survey is defined in the map below. The information provided in this survey will inform the development of appropriate management measures for recreational resources at the Bear Swamp Project.

Please take a few moments to complete a brief, anonymous survey about recreation use in the Bear Swamp Project area
