Recreation maps available for the Delaware Rivers

WEST TRENTON NJ – The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) welcomes in the 2014 recreational paddling and boating season with a reminder that the Delaware River recreation maps are available for purchase from the commission. 

The Delaware River map set is $25.  That includes N.J. sales tax and shipping/handling.

Published in 2007, the 10-section, waterproofed Delaware River recreation map set covers the river’s east and west branches prior to their confluence at Hancock, N.Y., the entire 200 mile, non-tidal reach of the river from Hancock to Trenton, N.J., and an additional 25 miles of the tidal river from Trenton to just south of the Betsy Ross Bridge (which connects Northeast Philadelphia, Pa. and Pennsauken, N.J.).  The GIS-based maps depict river channel locations and depths, public access areas, stream miles and reference points, and provide a detailed classification of streamflow characteristics in accordance with the International Canoe Federation's Scale of River Difficulty. 

The popular map sets are intended to serve as a general guide in exploring the many recreational activities offered on the Delaware River.  While these maps show river depths and rapids’ classifications, it is important to remember that actual river conditions may vary.  DRBC encourages paddlers to be aware of current weather and river conditions and always wear a personal flotation device (PFD).

The maps can now be purchased online via PayPal or major credit card.  Check or money order payments via mail are also accepted.  For additional information, please visit DRBC’s web site at www.drbc.net or call (609) 883-9500.  A portion of the proceeds will help fund the commission’s educational/outreach programs and activities.
