Zoar Outdoor

Those who follow Deerfield River westward from the Catamount State Forest to the Mohawk Trail State Forest travel through the hilly terrain of historic Charlemont. There, in 1989, the Berkshire Mountains and other geographical spoils caught the eyes of Bruce Lessels and Karen Blom—a medaling member of the US whitewater team and a public health nutritionist looking to make the outdoors more accessible. They built Zoar Outdoor on the river, establishing an 80-acre facility to be a base for ziplining, rock climbing, camping, and solar-powered lodging. Today, a staff of adventurers keeps that base running. They not only sell an arsenal of outdoor gear and continue those establishing activities, but also lead whitewater rafting and kayaking trips down their home river, slicing through the waves and rearranging a slew of fishes' living rooms along the way.

Customer Reviews

Zip lining weekend was amazing! We went as a family of six and we all had an absolutely fantastic day! Our instructors Wayne and Ruben were awesome! I would definitely recommend anyone going to do this.

Great instruction. They fine tune your class to fit your learning style. Bring a change of dry clothes to change into after and bring flip flops!
