Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

Superintendent Name: 
John J. Donahue
Did you know the Delaware watershed provides water for 10% of the nation's population? The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is home to the Middle Delaware River, which passes for over forty miles between low forested mountains with barely a house in sight. The river then cuts through the mountain ridge to form the famed "Water Gap." Exiting the park, the river runs 200 more miles to Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean at Wilmington, Delaware. Swim, fish, boat, canoe, kayak, raft and tube at the park. The Middle Delaware is one of the cleanest rivers around!
