2020 River of the Year

If you’re looking for some good news, here’s a success story that’s worth celebrating: The Delaware River is the River of the Year for 2020.

American Rivers, a non-profit river advocacy group, identified the Delaware River as the River of the Year because of the health of its ecology.

“The Delaware River is a national success story,” said Bob Irvin, President and CEO of American Rivers. “The River of the Year honor recognizes the hard work of many local advocates who understand that a healthy Delaware River is vital to the health of millions of people.”

The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is blessed to have this national treasure just footsteps away from our grand veranda. Our Delaware River is clean, wide-open, and perfect for outdoor recreation.

There has never been a better time to embrace outdoor recreation. Our Delaware River shines in the era of social distancing. Our private river access ensures the opportunity to enjoy the river while maintaining safe social distance practices.

The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort provides our guests an opportunity to experience the Delaware River like nowhere else in the world. From Shawnee River Trips and Fishing Adventures to our Guided Recreation (included with each stay) and self-guided swimming and exploration, our guests have exclusive and unique access to the best stretch of the Delaware River.
