The Pine Creek Gorge Natural Area is considered class II (out of 5) whitewater. It is generally pretty easy to float most of the year. The place where most people have problems is near Colton Point and Leonard Harrison State Parks. There are some class rapids in that particular section that catch people off guard.
If you capsize or flip over in your boat remember:
1) Always wear your PFD (lifejacket). Never take it off while on the water! Wear your wetsuit or drysuit if water temperatures are cold.
2) Lie on your back and point your feet downstream.
3) Stay upstream of your boat at all times.
4) Rescue people first, then equipment.
5) Keep going! It only gets easier after the parks.
If you find yourself wet & cold and in need of a warm up please consider your own body temperature. If you jog or start doing jumping jacks on the shore you will find your body temperature rise naturally. The idea is to be a self-rescuer and not depend on others.
Cell phone coverage is almost completely non existent in the Pine Creek Gorge Natural Area. Do not depend on modern technology for help in emergencies.
Camping is allowed in Tioga County (north of Rattlesnake Rock) and Lycoming County (south of Rattlesnake Rock). You must register ahead of time for permits with the state forest offices. Each state forest office is open Mon—Fri from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
