General Information:
Recreational: this is mostly a smooth water run with easy rifles in between. Very popular with inner tubers on weekend during the summer months. Week day trips are preferred if you want the river to yourself.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
Minimum water level of 2 feet at Chadd’s Ford is recommended for this run, unless you have a taste for knuckle walking.
This trip is fine after basic training. Rec boats from 9-14 feet work best on the river.

Brandywine river museum has a parking fee during summer months during museum hours. Take-out is just below smith’s bridge at the First State National Monument park. This is a popular spot and parking can get scares during summer months so an early start is recommended. Thompson’s Bridge at Brandywine state park is an alternate take-out if you have a park pass, though not recommended if the water level is low.
