The benefits, both mental and physical, of getting out on the water are endless. From relieving stress to building strength and boosting brainpower, the impact of paddling on a waterway is well proven. Home to two rivers, more than 90 small lakes and 130 streams, Luzerne County is the perfect spot to discover those benefits. Experience the thrill of a dam release while whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River, drop a line and fish on a peaceful lake or rent a kayak from Five Mountain Outfitters or Susquehanna Kayak & Canoe to explore the beauty along the banks of the Susquehanna River. Enjoy a group paddle to a wine tasting or under a full moon! Explore the lake at Frances Slocum State Park with a kayak, paddle board, peddle boat or canoe rented right on-site.
