Boating on the Neversink Reservoir – With its crystalline waters, cascading damn and bountiful views of the neighboring wilds, the Neversink Reservoir is paradise for recreational boating enthusiasts.

Kittatinny Zip Lines – If soaring above the Delaware River at speeds of over 50 miles per hour sounds like fun, then harness up and take a ride on one of the longest zip lines in the United States!

Horseback Riding – Horseback riding offers a family of outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to explore the region’s untamed wilderness in a more subdued manner; allowing the sights, sounds and smells of nature to filter in at a four-legged pace.
