The Nepaug River begins at the confluence of North Nepaug Brook and Cedar Swamp Brook about 1 mile east of Bakersville, Connecticut. It runs for 10.6 miles (17.1 km) to the Farmington River about a half mile south of Cherry Brook, Connecticut.[1] A large dam about 1 mile from the Farmington River creates Nepaug Reservoir which is about 2 miles long from north to south and about 1 mile wide running east-west. A popular whitewater paddling route begins along Dings Road about 1/10 of a mile downstream from the start of the Nepaug River. This river run is between Class I-II whitewater until the U.S. Route 202 bridge.
