Pennsylvania whitewater, Shohola Creek

Pike county, Shohola Falls Park to Mouth section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-IV     9.5 miles
You cannot kayak from your blue dot to your red dot.  This would mean you would have to go through a propagation area which has an Bald Eagle nest, a federal crime. Says Robert Johnson, WCO Pike County

First of all, you can't go past the game lands. It is all private.  Second of all, be courteous and do not kayak during the first few weeks of trout season.  Remember, we are guests on lands paid for by hunters and legally, we can only
    launch from designated boat ramps.  This would keep us off the creek as we can't legally go over the dam. Says Bob

Raft??? First off, I cant see raft going through box canyon. It might be possible, but I wouldn't
want to see someone I care about be the first. After the box, downstream of the route 6 bridge, you would need a lot of rain, I mean an awful lot of rain to get through the flat water section. Personally, I do some tough runs (CL4+) and I'm not sure I'd wanna be there with that much water. With plenty of water, medium level, we were scraping a lot in the flat water section. Also, in the canyon, if someone gets hurt, they are in for a bad  
day. This is evident by looking at a typo map or looking down from route three bridge. ''outside the state you might find the rivers here are more forgiving''. My travel for White Water is limited: NY, NJ, MA, CT, WV, MD, VT, NC. Never been out west. With my limited experience the above states and PA and 5 years kayaking including winter, I have no clue what the above quote means. Ratings CL1-5 (6 being a rating meaning it might not be runable), while far from perfect is a pretty good indication of water difficulty. Don't paddle here unless you know what you or doing. Says J.D.

This stretch of Shohola Creek is 9.
