Brief DescriptionNational Scenic and Recreational River
CategoryNational Park
DescriptionAs a part of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River stretches 73.4 miles (118.3 km) along the New York-Pennsylvania border. The longest free-flowing river in the Northeast, it includes riffles and Class I and II rapids between placid pools and eddies. Public fishing and boating accesses are provided, although most land along the river is privately owned. Wintering bald eagles are among the wildlife that may be seen here. This unit of the National Park Service is also home to John Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct and the Zane Grey Museum in Lackawaxen, PA.

Almost all land along the Upper Delaware River is privately owned, so visitors must respect private property. Of the total acreage authorized by Congress, only 30.37 acres are federally owned; the remainder of the river corridor is nonfederal, with most land under private ownership.
