The wonderful Susquehanna/Wyoming County scenery and the playfulness of the water have people coming here. There are a few other stretches in this river system that can be paddled as well. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Getting some
    good exercise and spending some quality time in nature have people coming from far and near. This section is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. If you're coming
from Scranton—Wilkes-Barre it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Pennsylvania you might find the rivers here a bit more manageable, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, this is an  
area with plenty of places for that.
