The Upper Delaware area has so much to offer. Hiking, Rafting, Canoeing and so much more! The scenic byway (Route 97)has some breathtaking spots - especially the Hawks Nest - just north of Port Jervis. The foliage in the fall is spectacular. You can sometimes see bear, deer, fox, and bald eagles along the way. The Roebling Bridge (the oldest... More

I often kayak down the Delaware River from Narrowsburg, NY during the summer season. Never fail to see Eagles soaring or perched along the river bank I usually enjoy a 5-6 hour trip , depending on how long we linger along the banks or on a flat rock having lunch, from Narrowsburg launch to Lackawaxen, PA landing. What a fantastic... More

Small, old villages steeped in history, rolling hills, curvy roads, beautiful river where eagles soar. A lovely place to visit.

Just the right amount of class 2 rapids to make for a fun trip. Canoes were in good condition with adequate instruction for safety given by the staff.

The rapids are a bit mild, but if you're just looking for a canoe float or a raft with beers and summer sun, you've found it!

June 2014 my wide and I spent a week kayaking on the Upper Delaware River. Starting in Hancock, NY and finishing in Pond Eddy, NY. The trip was everything we could have asked for. Wilder and more remote than expected it rivaled our backcountry trips in the Northeast Kingdom and Maine. Riffles and whitewater stretches intermixed with flatwater sections where... More

OMG the Delaware is Beautiful! I stood on the shore and watched the rafters and the canoes on the water. They were having so much fun it made my 61y/o body want to join them.

Narrowsburg is a charming town, if a bit sleepy in early June. The river views are superb from the bridge, and also from the little veterans' memorial park just below the bridge on the riverbank. We were not fortunate enough to see any eagles, but would love to go back and stay longer.

If you drive up NY 97 to view the Upper Delaware River you will experience great views and if your are lucky and keep your eyes on the sky and the shoreline of the river you will probably see the Bald Eagles which winter here or reside here year round!
