Start your Poconos canoeing or kayaking trip at Milford Beach, complete with a pavilion, picnic area, grassy beach, and other amenities. As you begin your paddle, take in the stunning sites of the Pocono Mountains and banks of the Delaware River, home to wildlife like bald eagles, bears, deer, and other creatures.
You’ll also pass several islands located within the river, like Sambo, Poxano, Depew, Tocks, Labar, Shawnee, and more. Look for some fun and interesting spots, like the ‘jumping rock’ on the Pennsylvania side of the river (to your right), the Historic Shawnee Inn, old copper mines, and the remains of the old Karamac Resort, where families used to flock during the summer for riverside fun.
Of course, the most exciting destination is the Delaware Water Gap, once considered to be a scenic Wonder of the World, and summer vacation spot that fascinated thousands of travelers.
