Hawley, PA, is a haven for summer activities, especially since we are home to Pennsylvania’s second-largest lake! While Lake Wallenpaupack provides plenty of exciting activities for summer fun, we also encourage our visitors (and residents!) to take advantage of the recreation opportunities on the Delaware River. The gentle currents and refreshing waters of the Delaware River make it a great spot to enjoy a full afternoon of tubing. When looking for an adventure the whole family can enjoy together, here are some of the best local spots for Delaware River Tubing.
2 Places for Delaware River Tubing Near Hawley
1. Kittatinny Canoes
With several locations to choose from, Kittatinny Canoes provides several opportunities to have fun on the water. For Delaware River tubing, you’ll want to go to either the River Beach Campsite in Milford, PA, or Barryville, NY, both of which are less than an hour drive from Hawley. There are two different tubing trips offered daily that last about two to three hours depending on the river conditions. Once you return to the campgrounds, you’ll be able to use the bathhouse facilities for drying off, freshening up, and changing into dry clothes.
Reservations are highly recommended during the afternoon, so be sure to book your spot today! Tickets are $27 per person and include everything you’ll need for a memorable journey.
2. Lander’s River Trips
In nearby Narrowsburg, NY, Lander’s River Trips offers two Delaware River tubing excursions. Whether you’re looking for a leisurely ride or an exhilarating journey through the rapids, you’ll find a trip that fits your needs.

Their longest ride is from Skinner’s Falls to Narrowsburg and takes approximately five hours to complete from start to finish.
