Quiet. Beautiful. Peaceful. Historic.
This paddle trip is "right sized" for so many people:
- Long enough to get a good river experience.
- Not so long that it is outside the conditioning of most paddlers.
- Typically, smooth class 1 water, with only seasonal exceptions.
- No portage sections
- No logistical vehicle considerations
- Safe and enjoyable for people of all ages

Bloomsburg launch locations:
The location in Rupert is next to this historic covered bridge and allows padders to first enjoy a section of the beautiful (and also class 1 water) Fishing Creek. At the put in location, there are calm pool, rock formations, a rope swing, and usually groups of locals swimming (as this is one of the favorite area swimming locations.
The second location is the Bloomsburg Town Park launch.
This location allows for plentiful parking (if that's a factor), and direct access to the Susquehanna
We have two launch locations because the river is a dynamic situation. Other groups, traffic, construction, river conditions, etc can all factor into our decision of launch locations. R.A.C. staff will try our hardest to honor your preference of launch locations (if you have one), but in the end, that decision will be at the discretion of the R.A.C. staff.
River Section Features:
- Quiet. Not many roads or power boats, so it gets quiet.

- Fauna. Eagles, beaver, ducks, song birds, and fish to enjoy.
- Historic. Rail road bridges, Canals, old Indian encampments.
R.A.C. Finish Location:
Getting finished paddling and simply wandering up the bank to your car, is the best way to finish a paddle trip. But if you need more adventure packed in your day, our location is just a short walk to the Historic train station Shade Mountain Winery location, Heeters Ice Cream and diner, the Muffin man coffee shop, Danville's Old Forge Brewing Company, and lots of shopping both in Riverside, and across the River in Danville. Feel free to leave your car in our lot, and wander. Better yet, bring some bicycles (or rent some from us) and continue your adventure by bike! So many great things to see, do and explore in and around the Riverside Adventure Company!
