First, thousands of canoe and kayakers enjoy the varying waters of the mighty Kiski River. Some stretches are lazy rivers that scream for a float tube and a few lazy hours of a sunny summer day, or weekend! Other sections add a little excitement as the water speeds up and turns a bit turbulent and white. Don’t worry…it’s not rapids. Just a little excitement. Some sections of the Kiski River are broad, shallow, and home to all of the wildlife Pennsylvania offers. Other sections have higher walls, deep water, and the kind of quiet you can only find on a river in the country.
