Everyone in the general public is encouraged and welcome to use the Susquehanna River Trail but please be aware:

WARNING TO ALL RIVER TRAIL USERS: Canoeing, kayaking, boating, camping and other river-related outdoor activities have inherent risks. The river environment (moving water, cold water, deep water, tricky currents, rocks, poison ivy, ticks, etc.), weather extremes (cold, heat, electrical storms, wind, etc.), and man –made structures (esp. dams) pose potential hazards. The river trail user should familiarize themselves with these hazards and have or obtain adequate skills to safely experience the river environment. Your safety is your responsibility!

Note: Since the printing of this trail guide, there have been island campsite closures and new campsites developed.

Campsites 105, 103, and 101 have been permanently closed. New campsites - 121, 120a, 120b, 101a, 101b, and 73a – have

been developed. Campsite 73 is now known as 73b. For more information on these sites including updated GPS coordinates,
