Kayaking and Canoeing at Bendigo State Park

The East Branch of the Clarion River is scenic and appropriate for beginning boaters under normal conditions. Best water conditions are generally in the spring.

A canoe launch is three miles upstream along Kilgus Road. 

Non-powered boats that launch in the park must display one of the following:

  • Boat registration
  • Launch permit or mooring permit from Pennsylvania State Parks, available at most state park offices
  • Launch permit from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission regulations and laws apply.
