If you are going to park your car overnight in any of the Delaware river or Appalachian Trail (AT) access parking lots for authorized activities such as Appalachian Trail overnight camping, or river trips lasting more than one day, you must register personal information with the park Emergency Operations office.
This allows our law enforcement rangers to better assist you in the event of an emergency. Your safety is our top priority. Proper planning is your best way to have a safe and memorable camping experience. Help us to be there for you.
If you are unable to use our registration system, please call the park Emergency Operations office at: 570-426-2457. (Note: This line is monitored 24/7 and should only be used when unable to register online)
The park superintendant has directed that those who are parked or at a location past regular visiting hours must be, as stated in the Superintendent's Compendium of Park Regulations “engaged in activities associated with authorized overnight trips on the Appalachain Trail (AT) or Delaware River, or engaged in hunting or fishing in accordance with federal and state law.” Educate yourself on the specific requirements related to overnight stays in the park prior to your trip to avoid any problems.
Camping is only permitted in designated locations. The park offers several different types of campsites.
