River sports: Enjoy kayaking on the calm pools of the Delaware, or rafting through its whitewater rapids. The Delaware River provides plenty of crystal clear water and rapids all season long. Whitewater rafting with Kittatinny is the highlight of any family vacation. Enjoy the whitewater all season long, regular dam releases from five different reservoirs maintain the river flow. Rafting on the Delaware River is perfect for novices and families; no experience is necessary. It’s cool wet fun for those hot summer days. Other fun water activities include canoeing and tubing.
The Delaware River has varying levels of white water that experienced paddlers can challenge all summer long and quiet calm water trips for novices, families and those who don’t want the excitement of the whitewater.
You have a choice of two different tubing trips offered daily. You can either meet at our River Beach campsites location in Pennsylvania or our Kittatinny Campground in New York. Whichever trip you choose, Kittatinny will transport you upriver to a launch site that will give you a 3-mile float trip that generally lasts between two to three hours depending on river conditions.
