Pennsylvania whitewater, Wallenpaupack Creek

Wayne county, Mountainview Road to Ledgedale Road section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-III     9.8 miles
Good stretch of water after a good hard rain. It is definitely not for the beginner. Creek winds through what is mostly private property. One land owner is not very friendly and will harass you, but that is near the end next to a waterfall. With all things said if you ignore the last land owner the creek is awesome. Says Pat

section of Wallenpaupack Creek is 9.8 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I-III section of whitewater. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground.

The starting point is not too far from East Stroudsburg, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. A bit of  
exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are great attractions for lots of people. This stretch is mid length, suitable for an afternoon trip. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. There are many good hotels to choose from, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
