I went on a Friday afternoon. Launched kayak & went down to the right under the bridge. Turned around and paddled easterly across reservoir from the launch ramp. Surface was glass smooth, water lukewarm. Saw no more than 3 boats entire day. Reservoir is great for beginners. I observed egrets, swan & duck. I plan to return to cover entire reservoir.


Aluminum boats & canoes available for rental. No kayaks available for rental. Deli is located at Spruce Grove Road & Rte 472.


$3.18 launch fee per


Take Rte 1 North/South to Rte 472 North, go over Octoraro Reservoir Bridge to first road on left (Spruce Grove Road), follow road to parking lot.
