Historic Conowingo Reservoir Loop Paddle

This paddle is located between the Holtwood Dam and the Conowingo Dam in Maryland. It will take you between several of the islands in the lower Susquehanna that you can spend the say exploring!

The launch point at Lock 15 is one of 29 locks that controls the waterflow between Wrightsville, Pennsylvania and Havre de Grace, Maryland. Paddle between and around the various islands in the River, or pull-out and explore them. You will paddle past Susquehannock State Park where you can also take a break and explore the park.

In addition to the history, you can also explore the petroglyphs on the rocks in the river. These rock carvings are about 1000 years old and are best seen when wet and then the sun is at a low angle.
