The Scenic, Wild Delaware River region encompasses the river’s watershed within nine counties in three states: Sussex and Warren counties in New Jersey; Delaware, Orange and Sullivan counties in New York; and Monroe, Northampton, Pike and Wayne counties in Pennsylvania. It includes the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and the Middle Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
The area is united by the river, and also features forests, floodplains, waterfalls, marshes, beaches, and mountains. Opportunities for nature and adventure-based tourism activities are ample. So, too, are historic, community and cultural sites. The Scenic, Wild Delaware River Geotourism Program aims to promote economic stability for communities within the region, as well as a shared identity that encourages collaboration across boundaries to benefit local communities and the natural system in which they exist.
The Scenic, Wild Delaware River Geotourism Program seeks to sustain and celebrate the health, beauty, diversity, and productivity of the natural, cultural and aesthetic resources of the upper and middle Delaware River. This website highlights the beauty and diversity of these lands and the communities through this informative website that presents the sites and stories of the region through the voices of the people who live here.
