Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River is rated as a Class 1 & 2
level river. In spring, when snow runoff creates higher water levels, the
rapids may raise the class certification to a level 3. Under certain
conditions, rafts and/or wetsuits may be mandatory.
height is between 2.5 and 3.5 feet, with some spots lower and
some being significantly higher. The Eddy near the Narrowsburg
Bridge is approximately 113 feet, created by glacier run off.
Most days the river varies from a burst of rapid to placid
pools where the fish and aqua life may be seen from your boat.
To make your trip more enjoyable don't take a trip which might
be longer than recommended. Sometimes an extra mile or so
could feel like a day if not properly prepared. Preparation
includes carrying the proper clothing, sunscreen, insect repellant,
food and water. You should also factor in who is paddling. Are
you with little kids? They tire sooner, leaving you to propel
the same size boat with less help.
TIME.- The Landers Staff at the launch areas know the
average times people can make their trip for the day. Listen to
them. Customers must be off the river by 6pm at our landing.
Most people prefer the ability to get into their own vehicle upon
ending their river trip (you would need to take advantage of the AM
shuttle for this to happen). This way, you would not have to wait for
our shuttle to give you a ride back to your car. When you get off the
river please check in with attendant, they track you and your boat.
We want to make sure everyone is safely off the river by 6pm.
You should remember to bring a dry change of clothing and maybe a cold drink or snack for the ride home.
Don't forget to
make next years reservation!
