Boating at Point State Park

Unlimited horsepower motors

The three rivers provide boating opportunities for most sizes and types of recreational boats.

Dock cleats are available along the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers for boaters to moor during the day at the park.

Boat Registration

Motorboats must display a current boat registration.

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

  • Boat registration
  • Launching permit or mooring permit from Pennsylvania state parks -- available at most state park offices
  • Launching permit from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission regulations and laws apply.

Three Rivers Water Trail

The Three Rivers Water Trail is a series of boat launching points on the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers that aids non-powered boaters in exploring the three rivers and the city of Pittsburgh.

Red paddle signs orient water trail users from the land and water to amenities like launching ramps, interpretive signs, canoe/kayak racks, and parking lots.

The trail was created and is maintained by the Friends of the Riverfront, a volunteer group that promotes stewardship of the rivers.
