Clearfield county, US Route 322 to West Br. Susquehanna section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     12.2 miles
  The starting location is a short drive from DuBois, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. The US Route 322 to West Br. Susquehanna section of Anderson Creek in Pennsylvania is 12.2 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class II-III section. The nature scenery of Pennsylvania and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state
    you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so you'd better keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are quite easy. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. Not too many hotels nearby,
you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. If you hurry you can run this section in a day but why not make it an overnighter, so why not pack your sleeping bag too. Getting your paddling muscles activated and spending some quality time in nature have people coming from far and near. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a pretty small number of paddling places.
