Faceoff has been consistently good for the past couple years. Really juicy hole that makes for easy ends, loops, etc. When the water is low it's good for mcnasties, lunar orbits, phonics monkeys, etc.
Cloverleaf was so-so at the beginning of the year, but something shifted in early August and it's now a really good spinning hole.
Horton's has been pretty good for the last couple years. It's always been really easy to cartwheel. But in the last month or two it's gotten much better for loops and such.
The water runs from the beginning of May until the end of October and is almost completely independent of rainfall. The cost is: $20 bucks for a day. (Even for evening sessions when the park is only open for 3 hours...)

Paddlers on the Lehigh River below the Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir are concerned that a planned study by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and its partners, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection will lead to a reduction in whitewater boating opportunities on the Lehigh. The study will evaluate the feasibility of various alternatives to optimize project operation. Aside from the project's authorized primary missions of flood risk management and recreation, the study will also consider water supply and water quality, to identify possible improvements to the existing structure, infrastructure, and operations that will support current and future demands within the region. The Army Corps is holding a public meeting on January 9, 2020 at the Mountain Laurel Resort in White Haven, PA from 6-8 p.m. to explain the study and hear public comments. American Whitewater, Appalachian Mountain Club, and other organizations are expected to file comments with the Army Corps prior to the September 29th deadline in order to share our concerns about the study and potential impacts on boating, the outdoor recreation economy, and the Delaware RIver Basin. We encourage our members to attend the public meeting to voice their concerns.
2010 marked the 25th anniversary of protecting the Black and Moose rivers! View an online video documentary on the Moose River and the early role that American Whitewater played in protecting this amazing river.
