Mongaup River

The Mongaup River is a tributary of the Delaware River in the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River area and is known for its wild trout fishery. The river is approximately 20 miles long and flows through the towns of Deerpark, Lumberland, and Mamakating, NY.

The Mongaup River is a highly valued whitewater boating resource that is enjoyed by thousands of paddlers each year in search of a predictable and enjoyable boating opportunity. The Mongaup draws boaters seeking a stretch of continuous Class II and III whitewater. One of the few options during dry months, the Mongaup is a frequent destination for paddling clubs in the region, thanks to releases from upstream reservoirs. The river is characterized by its ample surf opportunities, along with an eddy hopper’s dream, and rocks everywhere in the "miracle mile" keep paddlers thinking several moves ahead.
