Paddle through a quiet escape near Philadelphia

Paddle out into the winding tributaries of Mannington Meadow, paddle past tall reeds, and plenty of wildlife!

Access is a small lot capable of fitting roughly 15 cars at the end of the road. There is a concrete ramp, however due to low water levels paddle craft are best used. Once you get on the water turn left to head up on the of the inlets, or turn right for more inlets or to make it out to the larger Mannington Meadow body of water. You will be hard pressed not to see multiple different types of birds, as well as perhaps hear some jumping fish.

If you are feeling very adventurous feel free to paddle to Supawna Meadows Wildlife Refuge, however you can easily spend a couple hours in the different routes around the access point.

There are no bathrooms or facilities of any kind at the access point.
