Boating at Erie Bluffs State Park

A 24-hour boat launch suitable for small motorized watercraft, kayaks, and canoes is available at the Elk Creek Access, allowing boaters and fishermen to access Lake Erie. Fluctuations in lake and stream elevation may impact launching.

Motorboats must display a current boat registration. 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
  • Launch permit from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission regulations and laws apply.
