Family-Rafting The Lehigh River: One Of The 50 Best Rides In America

Voted by Outside Magazine as one of the 50 Best Rides in America, The Lehigh River Gorge is a frisky, family-friendly river, home to the most spectacular whitewater in the mid-Atlantic region.

Located in the western Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania, the Lehigh is surrounded by state park protected woodlands and mountains.

Enjoy 12 miles and 5 hours of Class III whitewater rafting and outstanding scenery with your family this summer with a fun-filled family-style raft trip! The area is perfect for beginners, church groups, school groups, scouts, and kids ages 4 and older.

Enjoy the classic family picnic and BBQs with potato salad, hot dogs and watermelon, located at their free riverside BBQ – cooked and served in a riverside meadow.

*BBQ is served weekends in June & September and daily July through August. Bring family and friends. It’s so easy and everything you need for a fun day is provided.

For more excitement and adventure, ride along the “converted-for-biking” former railroad bed that parallels the Lehigh River through the Lehigh River Gorge State Park or play some action-packed paintball at Skirmish Paintball fields, voted #1 in the country with over 700 acres of top-notch terrain, including two castles!
