Conomo Point / Clammers Beach


Recommended Posts

Is anyone familiar with the put in's at Conomo Point or Clammers Beach? I am not a resident of Essex and wasn't sure about the parking situation at either of these put ins?


You can launch from the Clammer's Beach. Leave your car on the opposite side of the road. Check the tides. Generally you need a couple of hours before and after low tide to navigate.

The clammers' beach is the first one on your right when you get out there. It has a couple picnic tables, a stone ledge, and beyond that, an unpaved boat ramp. Do not block the boat ramp! Drop your boat off on the beach, then go park your car beyond the "Resident parking only" sign on the other side of the road. There is space for at least a half-dozen cars there along the edge of the marsh. The few parking places between the sign and the Porta-Potti are off limits to us out-of-towners.

As Gene indicates, launching there within an hour of low tide involves a bit of slogging through sticky mud.

But it's such a lovely place to paddle!
