The "Grand Canyon" of Pennsylvania canoeing.

The only notable whitewater section (Class ll), Owasee Rapid, is located 3 miles from the put-in at Ansonia. At normal levels, this can be run in a 17' canoe if one has some whitewater experience. The rapid can be scouted and portaged on a gravel bar on river left and is also marked by signs upriver.

You can add four miles to the trip by taking out in Slate Run, PA.

There is a small but fun wave called the Mixmaster. Its a few miles north of Camel. You can see the
wave from a boat launch, but park along the road where the rail/trail crosses the road (rt 414) and
walk out the boater path. min 800 max 1800 cfs.
