Visitors are encouraged to visit the park’s website or call for updated information, maps, and directions before visiting.The valley has known human hand and voice for 10,000 years. Floodplains nourished the Native farmer; waterfalls drew the Victorian vacationer. Today, a 70,000-acre park welcomes those who seek the outdoors. The area is rich in both cultural and natural history. The river valley contains streams, waterfalls, geologic features, a diversity of plants and wildlife, and traces of the past. Popular activities include canoeing, rafting, fishing, picnicking, hiking and camping. The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area’s headquarters building on River Road in Bushkill is currently closed for renovations. Visitor service operations are temporarily located in the Bushkill Meeting Center on Route 209, open weekdays from 8:30am until 4:30pm.
