 Planning a Swatara Outing? Tips:

For comparison, when the Harpers gauge at our launch @ 1929 Blacks Bridge Road, Annville reads the following heights:
bullet

5.5’, & the Road to site #1 is almost covered, not         accessible and partly flooded;  

bullet

7’ our ramp is covered to the top gravel border; 

bullet

9’ the swell puts water onto sites 1-4 & site 8; and

bullet

10.56', only sites 26-35 do not flood. 

Depth  USGS Guages  National Weather Service provides forecasts for Harper's and Hershey gauges. Check the gauge nearest your start point.  Reschedule if experienced, but           water is rising between 3.5' & 4' or below .4'.  Kayaks may     float a bit lower.  Beginners should reschedule at 2.2' deep. 

bulletUse caution at dams:  With groups, avoid low-head dam in Jonestown.  Uneven portage on left bank, which disappears    into tree line in high water.  Hershey dam portage is also           on the left.  Long, but flat, mowed route.  Take out at         feeder stream on left before warning sign.
