Pennsylvania whitewater, Tohickon Creek

Bucks county, Ralph Stover State Park to Point Pleasant section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     3.8 miles
  The Ralph Stover State Park to Point Pleasant stretch of Tohickon Creek is 3.8 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class II-III section of whitewater. The average Pennsylvania whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be easier to run than those in other states, so don't forget that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. If you're coming from Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton it's not a long drive at all to the
    starting location, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. This section is quite short so it's
not like you're gonna spend hours on the river in one stretch. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good places for that around here. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. This river system has a few good paddling sections and the Ralph Stover State Park to Point Pleasant  
section is one of them. The scenic beauty of Pennsylvania and the playfulness of the water make the trip here worthwhile.
