Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area encompasses nearly 70,000 acres (283 KM^2) of land along the Delaware River's New Jersey and Pennsylvania shores, from the Delaware Water Gap at I80, northward almost to the New York state line. Middle Delaware National Scenic River is a designated 64 KM section of the river entirely within the recreation area.

The recreation area runs from the northeastern outskirts of Milford, Pennsylvania (400 KM above the Delaware's mouth at the Atlantic Ocean), SW to near Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania. It is located in parts of Sussex and Warren counties in New Jersey, and Monroe, Northampton, and Pike counties in Pennsylvania. The Appalachian Trail runs along much of the eastern boundary.

At the south end of the park, the river cuts eastward through the Appalachian Mountains at the scenic Delaware Water Gap proper. Depending on the season, visitors can canoe, hike, camp, swim, bicycle, ski, ride horses, stop at historic Millbrook Village, and of course, orienteer. Fishing and hunting are permitted in season with state licenses. The park hosts significant Native American archaeological sites, and a number of structures remain from colonial Dutch settlements.
