  • Croton River, Croton, NY, class 3 whitewater river croton river at the dam

  • Deerfield, Monroe Bridge (Dryway), Monroe, MA, class 4 whitewater river dragons-tooth-dryway
    The Dryway is for better or worse the definition of a class 4 in our area. With frequent releases in a beautiful area, it's as good as spot as any to step up and a great place to practice moves. But don't let it's popularity full you...nearly every major rapid has had serious injuries. This is no place for shaky skills or a sometimes roll.

  • Garfield Boys and Girls Club Pool, Garfield, NJ, unclassified place Garfield boys and girls club pool with kayakers
    Our beautiful pool. Enter thru the door that says the pool entrance is further along the ramp with your clean boat and equipment. Spacious locker rooms are thru the doors to the right of the bleachers.

  • Ken Lockwood Gorge (South Branch of the Raritan River), Califon, NJ , class 3 whitewater river

  • Lehigh River - White Haven, White Haven, PA, class 3 whitewater river Not actually this trip but at least the right river and right time of year.
    The Lehigh is a great beginning whitewater river with frequent and well attended summer releases. River Classification *II – III

  • Savoy State Park, Florida, MA, unclassified place

  • Tohickon Creek, Pipersville, PA, class 3 whitewater river 
    Our classic step up river with several creeky drops not normally found on class 3 rivers. With a good guide someone solid on the Mongaup can have a great time. First weekend of Nov. and 3rd weekend of March releases are the classic bookends of the release season and many folks paddling seasons, with camping along the river at the take out unless the Delaware is flooding.

  • West River, Jamaica, VT, class 3 whitewater river west fest shuttle
