Lakes & Rivers

Make a splash! It’s easy when you have 83,000 mile of rivers and streams to play in. Add more than few lakes and ponds and some excellent swimming holes, and what you have is wet and wild paradise. Kayakers, swimmers, canoe enthusiast, and sailors all love the Pennsylvania Wilds. If you’re after a lazy day in the sun, you can find it along our unspoiled waterways. If you want whitewater adventure that makes your heart race you can find that too.

Guide services and canoe liveries can be found in the Canoe & Kayaking section of our website.
