Pennsylvania whitewater, Canoe Creek

Clarion county, I-80 bridge to Clarion River section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

  The beautiful scenery of Pennsylvania and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. This is a somewhat short section so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Getting a good workout and just being out on the river for a while will have
    you coming back for more. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The put-in location
is a reasonable drive from Oil City, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, around here you'll find a large number of good places. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Pennsylvania are easier than the national norm, so keep in mind that many of the sections in this state are safe for beginners.
