B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Boat): Gravel Lick-Mill Creek

Bring your own boat, beverage, and... bananas, for an interpretive guided float down the National Wild & Scenic Clarion River.  Wildlife and lumber history abound along this secluded stretch of the river.  Fishing is excellent.  Help us document wood duck nesting success, river otter sign, and bald eagle nests while we kayak through Steel Trap.  This is a true wilderness boating experience.  No sign of human occupation until we get near the end.  Only experienced boaters permitted.  Please meet at the Park Office where we will drive to the starting point.  Folks must pre-register by contacting the Park Office at (814)744-8407 or cookforestsp@pa.gov by 6/8.  Registration limited to 10 boats.  Cost is $40/boat payable by cash, check, or money order made out to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  Prior Cook Forest kayak training participants receive a 50% discount.  Register early, available spots go fast.  See you on the river!
