Date: 17-19 May 2024

Sponsor: Sharon Schierling

The 2024 Stonycreek Rendezvous will be held May 17th, 18th, 19th in Johnstown, PA.  It’s a festival including- Live Music under the pavilion, Vendors, Auction, Food Trucks, Libations, Rodeo Competition, Down River Race, Nightine play wave action under the lights. For complete info on the festival, see:

Camping: Greenhouse Park, Green House Rd, Johnstown, PA 15905. Bring your tent, trailer or RV.  Camping for the festival is in the park and the Hoosiers always camp together, so find us before setting up your tent.  $10 gets you a three day pass to freely come and go from the event. An additional $10 gets you a three day camping pass. 

There is a combination release from the reservoir and natural flow, so there’s guaranteed water. If there is sufficient natural flow, they cut back the level of the release. Best of both worlds! 

Stonycreek Canyon (class III+) is a great next step for those who can run the Lower Yough comfortably.  It requires more boat control and is an introduction to creeking. It is also known as “Surfers Paradise” because of the many surfing waves.  In addition, at the park they’ve built two play waves, with good eddy service in case you or the kids want to practice your surfing or playboat moves – whether or not you enter the rodeo competition.  (Great place to demo your friend’s boat!)   

The main Hoosier group will run both the Canyon section and the Lower section on Friday and Saturday.  The campground/festival site is the takeout so when you get off the river, put your boat on your shoulder and walk to our camp.  (No one has to go get vehicles except the shuttle drivers!) 

On Sunday, we will run the Canyon section only, taking out at Carpenters Park so we can get on the road earlier.
