LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: Holtwood is a section of the Susquehana River below the Holtwood Dam. It is one of our most beautiful paddles with unique geologic formations. There is abundant wildlife with plenty of osprey and eagles.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
The water is an impoundment controlled by the Holtwood Dam above and the Conowingo Dam below. During most of the season, there is very little current, but there can be significant currents that build up quickly depending on the rate of release. When the current is low, rocks that lurk just under the water surface are not visible. Paddle carefully. We paddle upstream along the low current west bank then switch to paddle downstream along the high current east bank. We finish with a trip up the Muddy Creek, a great place for a swim.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
This is one of our favorite swimming spots, so plan to get wet. Lunch is on one of the many sandy beaches.

Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
Parking is in the Exelon Interpretive Center at Lock 15, NOT the Pennsylvania Fish and Game Boat Launch.
