In 2007, the DRBC released this updated reprint of its popular recreation maps, which includes additional reaches of the Delaware River than the previous 1991 version. Now also GIS-based, the 10-section, waterproofed map set covers the river's east and west branches prior to their confluence at Hancock, New York, the entire 200 mile, non-tidal reach of the river from Hancock to Trenton, New Jersey, and an additional 25 miles of the tidal river from Trenton to just south of the Betsy Ross Bridge (which connects Northeast Philadelphia, Pa. and Pennsauken, N.J.).
The maps depict river channel locations and depths, access areas, places of interest, stream miles and reference points, and provide a detailed Classification of streamflow characteristics in accordance with the International Canoe Federation's Scale of River Difficulty.
The Delaware River Recreation Maps are priced at $25/set. Purchase both the Delaware and Schuylkill map sets for $30, a $5 savings! Shipping and handling is included.
Please download the order form, fill out completely, and send in with your check made payable to "Delaware River Basin Commission." If you are ordering both map sets, please note so on the order form and your check. We apologize, but DRBC cannot accept credit card orders at this time.

This guide includes additional information on points of interest, emergency services and local amenities, as well as detailed landing maps, contacts to obtain overnight camping permission (where allowed), and other useful information. You can learn more about the guide on SRHA/SRGA's web site. Sorry, the DRBC is not offering this guide for sale, so you must contact SRHA/SRGA if you are interested in purchasing a copy.
