River Description

This description is for the section from Rockwood, PA to Markleton, PA which is about 7 miles long.  The putin is on the river left/downstream side of the Rockdale Bridge in the center of Rockwood, PA where there's plenty of parking.  At moderate to low water levels there are a few ledges that form play waves or eddies to catch, but nothing more than Class II+.  At high water, it's a wash with powerful current that takes some boat control to leave the put-in.  Take-out is on river left/downstream side of the Markleton Bridge.


Area Camping
Ohoipyle state park
Laurel hill state park
These state parks will not allow any rowdy-ness or ALCOHOL (I believe).
You might want to go to one of the private campgrounds in the area.
