The Lackawaxen area is paradise for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and historical points of interest. Situated on the scenic Delaware River, Lackawaxen is the perfect destination for kayaking, tubing, and rafting. During the early part of the 18th century, logging was the principal commercial activity in the township. Logs were fastened together and floated down the two rivers, eventually reaching Easton or Trenton. Because of the narrow channel of the Lackawaxen River, smaller rafts were necessary to navigate the waters, and it’s estimated that during this period, 50 million board feet of lumber were taken down the River annually.
