Ducky Rentals:

Essentially a sit on top kayak, as connected and close as you can get to whitewater. These crafts are sensitive to the contours of the turbulent river surface. You feel the currents and waves exactly like a kayaker does. You should aggressively navigate through the rapids with this craft. If or when you fall out, just climb back in and paddle. Get ready for an action packed time. We include paddles, PFD's and helmets.

Shredder Rentals:

Small, fast, nimble two person rafts that really connect you to the whitewater and amplify all the waves. These offer a higher vantage point for river navigation as well as added stability. We include paddles, PFD's and helmets.

Lower Yough Raft Rental Information:

LOWER YOUGH RAFT RENTAL CUSTOMERS MUST SET UP THEIR OWN SHUTTLE TO THE TAKE-OUT (Old Mitchell Parking Lot). ARRIVE AT LEAST ONE HOUR EARLY.

You must buy a shuttle token at the State Park put-in launch booth.

Get your Lower launch permit first, then call us for the equipment.

This Launch Permit will give you a specific time to launch your trip at the State Park Put-In. Call 1-888-PA-PARKS to reserve your launch time.

ON WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS A LAUNCH PERMIT IS REQUIRED FOR THE CLASS III-IV LOWER YOUGH SECTION.

Ohiopyle State Park regulates river traffic on the Lower Section. You must have a launch permit on weekends and holidays. A launch permit is like a tee time on a golf course. You call the state for the permit, tell them the number of people you have in your group, they will then tell you the time slots they have available for that day. You will need a launch permit prior to your trip (several weeks ahead of time for busy weekends/holidays).

Groups of Unaccompanied Minors Must Take a Guided Trip. We Suggest First Time Rafters Take a Guide Escorted or Guided Trip.

Things to Bring:

  • Swimsuit
  • Extra set of glasses for drivers?
  • Nylon or old shorts, no jeans or sweat pants.
  • Water shoes, sandals, old tennis shoes.
  • Dry clothes and towel for after the river (Leave these in your car).
  • Reservations are complete, everyone has paid?
  • Sunglasses, sunscreen, glasses strap.
  • Camping or lodging reservations have been made and confirmed?
  • All drivers know where to meet the rest of the group and where to check in?
  • Parental permission slips are signed by parent or legal guardian for those under 18 not accompanied by parents. Bring forms along-DO NOT EMAIL.
  • The trip time is clear to everyone. Be dressed and ready. Allow an extra 20 minutes if you intend to rent wet suits. We cannot hold the trip for latecomers. If you get lost, call our number and we will do our best to help. No refunds for missed trips!
  • Rental raft customers should bring water and snacks for their river trip packed in zip locks.
  • River running has inherent dangers. Everyone must sign a liability release form, (minors MUST have release signed by parent or legal guardian).
  • Ready to have fun?

Arrive one to two hours before your launch time, so you have ample time to arrange shuttle, and get your equipment. We give you an equipment briefing. You will also be required to purchase a shuttle token (from the river to the take-out parking lot). Arriving one to two hours early is only for rental customers. You do not have to arrive this early for a guided or guide escorted river trip. We have already taken care of the shuttle.
