Jersey Shore Public River Access
By Joseph Hamm
Jersey Shore Borough Manager
The Jersey Shore Borough Public River Access project has been a tremendous success for our community. It has given our residents, visitors to our community, and tourists the opportunity to access the West Branch of the Susquehanna River. We have received a great response from those who use it, such as kayakers, canoers, and fishermen. The overlook has also been a popular area with our residents who enjoy taking in the scenic view in the evenings. They describe it as being such a relaxing place to be. We have even heard of possible plans of a local couple who have business space near the riverfront that they may put in a sandwich and coffee shop and rent out canoes and kayaks.
