The access points are owned by The Trustees of Reservations, and they've posted the land due to a number of fatalities among swimmers. The sign by the entrance prohibits many activities, but does not specifically mention boating; this is probably an oversight.
Access to the river is fenced off; they don't want anyone getting close enough to scout it. If they had any idea the creek was navigable they certainly wouldn't want you running it either.
Please respect their wishes. Nobody wants to create ill will over one park-n-huck.
