Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Chamberlain Canoes was founded by Jim Chamberlain of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, in 1968. The Chamberlain family operated the livery through 1989. Robert Sweeney and his son, Brad, from Delaware Water Gap purchased the business in 1990 and have proudly been operating Chamberlain Canoes ever since.
Chamberlain Canoes is handicapped-accessible, however some of the river accesses used may be steep and rocky, posing some difficulty getting to the water.
Pet Friendly Notes
Chamberlain Canoes is pet friendly in canoes and kayaks only. Sorry, no pets in rafts or tubes. All pets must be leashed when within the National Recreation Area.
