Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area

— Smithfield Beach —

The Delaware River is the longest undammed river east of the Mississippi. Three segments-Upper, Middle, and Lower—-flow unimpeded 330 miles from Hancock, New York, to the Delaware Bay.
Congress designated the Middle Delaware National Scenic and Recreational River in 1978. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act preserves rivers throughout the United States for their wild, scenic, and recreational attributes. Designated rivers must be free-flowing and have excellent water quality. These qualities of the Middle Delaware protect clean drinking water, maintain high ecological integrity, and ensure superior recreational experiences.
(Inscription in the upper left corner) The defeat of the Tocks Island Dam in 1975 was an early victory for the environmental movement.
(Inscription in the upper right) American shad can freely migrate up the Delaware River from the bay in spring.
