The 42-mile Tunkhannock Creek is the only waterway within the Middle Susquehanna River watershed nominated for the 2021 River of the Year honors.
Voting has begun to select the 2021 River of the Year, with a deadline for online voting set for Jan. 22, 2021. We encourage everyone within our watershed to consider voting for the Tunkhannock Creek. Why? Consider the following:
When Tunkhannock Creek is at its normal water flow levels, it is widely utilized for outdoor recreational activities like fishing, swimming and paddling as well as the backdrop for a number of creek side events like bluegrass festivals, wine festivals, community picnics, and competitive running events.

I have loved the Tunkhannock Creek since I was a little boy. It’s beautiful with great fishing and swimming and an abundance of wildlife.

I am hoping to learn some good put in spots north of Rte 6 to kayak the Tunkhannock Creek down to Lazy Brook Park (if indeed that is the park across the road from Deer Park Lumber). Any good maps for that?
