Kayaking and Canoeing at Clear Creek State Park

The Class 1 Clarion River provides excellent canoeing and kayaking, especially during the spring and fall.

The average downward flow is four miles per hour. A popular half-day paddling trip is from Belltown to Clear Creek State Park. A longer trip is from Clear Creek State Park to Cook Forest State Park.

There are public boat launches at both Cook Forest and Clear Creek state parks.

Non-powered boats must display one of the following:

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