Upper Delaware Council 32nd Annual Family Raft Trip
Join the UDC for an exciting and scenic 8-mile raft trip on the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River from Minisink Ford to Pond Eddy.
Lander’s River Trips will provide the rafts, paddles, life jackets, safety instructions, and shuttle transportation. Minimum occupancy per raft is four
people. Participants should be in good physical condition. Children must weigh a minimum of 40 lbs. and be able to swim. For optimum safety, all UDC participants (adults and children) will be required to wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation device when they are on the water for the duration of the trip. For more information on water safety, refer to the National Park Service website at
Pack a picnic lunch and plenty of drinking water (no glass containers allowed). Dress to get wet, wear sunscreen and foot protection, and avoid bringing valuables. Small coolers and waterproof bags for items such as cameras and keys may be tied into the raft. This average trip length is 4.5 hours, though the timing varies according to river level, wind, and each group’s desired pace.
