A Complementary Activity: Whitewater Rafting in the Poconos

As we surge ahead toward summer’s arrival, it’s impossible not to daydream about the various exploratory adventures available at the award-winning Woodloch Resort. For families with adventurous adolescents, you’ll likely want to spend your afternoons fishing for largemouth bass, ziplining through the thick forestry, and water skiing atop Lake Teedyuskung, our semi-private, 15-acre body of water. And, while you won’t need to leave our 1,200-acre haven during your next classic summer vacation, we highly recommend connecting with a local river outfitter for a half-day of whitewater rafting in the Poconos.

Family-Friendly Whitewater Rafting in the Poconos

Whitewater rafting in the Poconos, much like ziplining, mountain biking, and ATVing, is an especially exhilarating way to explore the region. Before or after your trip, seek out the guiding services of a nearby outfitter, such as Lander’s River Trips (Narrowsburg, NY), Kittatinny Canoes (Milford, PA), or Reber River Trips (Barryville, NY). As a collective whole, these three regional companies offer the top-reviewed Poconos river rafting tours. Rates, tour lengths, and launch locations vary, depending on the rafting company. All three teams strictly utilize the sheer power (and beauty) of the wide Delaware River, which also acts as a Pennsylvania-New York border. This particular slice of the Pocono Mountains is widely known for its deep gorges, lush forestry, and, of course, wild (yet inviting) rapids. Most trips cater to mid-sized families with adolescents and older.

Adventurous Activities at Woodloch Resort

As much as we cherish whitewater rafting in the Poconos, there’s just something truly uplifting and rewarding about being able to choose between 30-plus homegrown activities at a world-class, all-inclusive resort. Woodloch Resort, USA Today’s top-rated family getaway, boasts a seemingly countless array of on-site adventures on any given day, particularly during summer’s peak when the waters of Lake Teedyuskung feel as refreshing as a glass of iced tea on a sweltering afternoon. We mentioned earlier that ziplining, fishing, and water skiing all perfectly complement four hours of whitewater rafting in the Poconos. But don’t forget that Woodloch Resort also offers all-inclusive packages that can include go-karting, archery target practice, rock wall climbing, championship golf, Summer Olympics, trapshooting, and many more exciting pursuits.
