The Island Section - From Sunbury to Harrisburg, PA
The Susquehanna River meanders 444 miles from its origin at Otsego Lake near Cooperstown, NY until it empties into the Chesapeake Bay at Havre de Grace, Md. The Susquehanna River Trail covers the middle stretch of the river - 50 miles from Sunbury downstream to Harrisburg.
Along this route, boaters, canoeists and kayakers can explore the great river and its diverse scenery and habitats. River otters, beavers and other mammals are sometimes seen from the river. Access, primitive campsites and points of interest are clearly indicated in an easy to use format. This map details the Susquehanna River Water Trail section from Sunbury to Harrisburg. Each guide contains a description of the route, the local natural history and is a great evening campfire read. All access areas are coded for available services. Each campsite insert contains a red line path that shows the route to the campsite. Latitude and longitude is shown for each campsite. The map is waterproof.
Please note that boating, canoeing, kayaking and other activities on rivers can be dangerous. Obtain a water trail map and guide in advance, plan your trip, and follow all safety precautions.
