Williamsport, Pennsylvania

Kayak from Susquehanna State Park

Originally added by Shawn Grenninger

The West Branch of the Susquehanna River at Susquehanna State Park is peaceful and calm. The river is a great place to take in some spectacular sunsets!

This adventure can be started from the boat launch at Susquehanna State Park in Williamsport, PA.   The river is slow moving and calm in this section.   Since the river is slow you can easily paddle up river and then return to the same boat launch.

A short round trip can be made by paddling west up river.  You will paddle by the Hiawatha Paddlewheel Riverboat dock and along Susquehanna State Park.  There will then be a thin but long island in the river.  A good spot is paddling to the far end of the island.  Enjoy the sunset from your kayak or find a spot on the island.  

This adventure can be a quick after work trip or could be spent as an evening on the river capping it off with sunset on the water.
