Upper Felix Dam Park

Canoe launch. Portage take-out. Parking for 15. Felix Dam interpretive signage, canal lock, and other historic structures. A short segment of the Schuylkill River Trail runs through this park.

For those choosing to portage around the rapids caused by the remnants of the two old Felix Dams, take out here for a 0.3 mile carry to Lower Felix Dam Park to re-enter the river (see “◊ Remnants of two old Felix Dams” for portage path and additional hazard guidance).

NOTE: From River Road, the entrance to this park appears to be a private driveway on the left side of the home at 4100 River Road. For more-accurate location of this entrance or to locate the launch in the park, see map above or follow GPS coordinates below:
