Buffalo Creek Guided Canoe & Kayak Trip

UPDATE re TOMORROW's May 3 trip:

We just finished a Buffalo Creek scouting trip from Cowan to Lewisburg. There was barely sufficient water, but far too many snags and quick moves, for us to take guests from Cowan to Mazeppa tomorrow.

However, the Strawbridge Road to Lewisburg section was a perfect water level.   Allan & Jeremy were able to clear the most problematic snags.  So, tomorrow afternoon’s trip will be from Strawbridge Road to Lewisburg.

If you would like to join us on the Creek tomorrow, please respond to this email &/or phone 570-524-7692 to reserve your spot(s).  We will accept reservations until 8 am Saturday, May 3. 

Shuttle:  Everyone (those of you using your own boats, as well as those guests using our boats), please meet Allan and Jeremy at  St. George St., Lewisburg for our 1 pm bus shuttle to the put-in.  Doing the shuttle this way means that your vehicles are waiting for you at the end of the paddle. 

Paddle Buffalo Creek with Canoe Susquehanna staff and members of the Buffalo Creek Watershed Alliance. Buffalo Creek is an outstandingly beautiful paddle in the spring. Narrow, with a canopy of trees, the character of Buffalo Creek contrasts quite a bit with the more wide-open feel of our Susquehanna River paddling trips.

Because of low summer water levels, we aren't able to guide trips on Buffalo Creek later in the season. So, don't miss your chance to experience this unique tributary. Be sure to sign up for one of our Buffalo Creek Trips today!

Before we launch our canoes & kayaks onto Buffalo Creek each trip, Allan Quant & Jeremy Quant will share information about paddling techniques, safety issues, etc.

PLEASE keep in mind that "early season" always means cold water and may well mean cold air temps.  Expect to get your feet and lower legs wet whenever you enter or exit your kayak.

These trips benefit the Buffalo Creek Watershed Alliance.

Cost: $40/person if you plan to use a Canoe Susquehanna kayak, please review the Our Canoes and Kayaks page to help you decide which model you would prefer to use.

Cost: $30/person if you bring your own equipment.  For the Buffalo Creek routes, boats need not have FBC or DCNR stickers.

Reservations are required. Phone (888-524-7692 or 570-524-7692) or email ( for details and to book your spot!
