Delaware River Canoe Trip

Delaware River Camping Trip

The first three days of the trip will have frequent rifts and white water that will demand your river knowledge to be sharp, as well as provide a lot of fun! The latter half of the trip will have much larger stretches of smooth water. On the Delaware River, you will have opportunities to see bald eagles, fish, deer, and perhaps even a bear if you’re lucky. And when you enter the Water Gap, don’t miss the opportunity to sit on the tri-state rock! There are no portages on this trip unless you choose to carry around some of the white water.
