Kayaking and Canoeing

Non-motorized kayaks and canoes may be launched onto the Delaware River and the Delaware Canal.

The river poses natural hazards and visitors should use caution on and around the river!

Kayaks and canoes that launch 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

Complete information about boating rules and regulations in Pennsylvania is available from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.
