The Jones’( family business owners) passion remains the river, so much so that Kittatinny Canoes spends over $30,000 a year to sponsor a river cleanup every July. Ruth states that the river has been her playmate since her earliest memory and still is today. Kittatinny strongly believes that you can’t keep taking away from a resource without giving something back.
For more information about our annual river clean-up or to be involved please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject line write "River Clean-Up."
Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Kittatinny is family owned and operated.. It all started back in 1941 when Ruth’s parents, Ernie and Edna Olschewsky, purchased riverfront property, including six canoes and a few rowboats. They rented the boats to fishermen plying the big pool that formed at the foot of Mount Tammany. Situated near the Kittatinny Ridge of the Appalachian Mountains, this beautiful piece of land was appropriately named “Kittatinny Beach” by Edna, in keeping with the old Indian name meaning “endless mountains.” As you paddle down this scenic river, there are always endless breathtaking mountains ahead of you.
One day a customer asked Ernie if he would drive him upstream with a canoe in the back of his pickup truck so he could paddle back downstream with the current. On that day the river trip business was born.
Kittatinny Canoes was founded in 1941, with only a few boats. Kittatinny has grown into one of the largest fleets of canoes, rafts, kayaks, and tubes in the world. The river trips today extend over 120 miles of Delaware River, running through New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Two riverfront campgrounds, paintball facilities and zip lines are also part of the family business.
The Jones family continues to preserve its beauty by keeping it clean and pure for future paddlers. Don’t be surprised if on a hot summer day, you see Ruth (who is in her 80"s) paddling down the river, keeping a watchful eye on the Delaware, the wildlife that inhabits it and the beautiful flowers that grow on its banks.
Mid April- October 31st (weather providing).
