Farm River State Park boat slipsQuinnipiac University, through a management agreement with the State of Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP), provides public access to a limited number of seasonal passes to the Farm River State Park. This access allows car top canoe and kayak launching at the Mansfield Landing site at the park. The goal of this program is to enhance public access to Long Island Sound and its waterways and to facilitate public recreation for local residents.

As part of Quinnipiac University's management plan with the State DEEP, Quinnipiac University is committed not only to maintaining the public use aspects of the park, but to ensuring that the natural beauty and integrity of the flora, fauna and geology be preserved. Persons that enter into this agreement with Quinnipiac University will be expected, through their use of the park, to uphold this philosophy. Access agreements with persons that act irresponsibly (as defined within the terms and conditions document) will be terminated immediately.

The terms of this agreement are limited to the use of non-motorized car-top boats, referred to in the following document as self-propelled personal watercraft. View the Terms and Conditions agreement (PDF).
