Many of the links above will keep you specifically in Sunbury and Northumberland County in the Susquehanna Valley
Northumberland County is located about an hour north of Harrisburg along the Susquehanna River in the heart of the Susquehanna Valley. Northumberland's most visible attributes are its waterways and forests. Streamside, anglers enjoy some of the best fishing on the East coast. The West Branch of the Susquehanna is recognized as a superb bass fishery while smaller streams, like White Deer and Penn's Creek as excellent trout streams.
Boating on the Susquehanna has become popular and the Fish Commission has developed access ramps at many locations along the river. The impoundment of the north and west branches of the Susquehanna at Sunbury is a busy boating area complete with marina and boat rentals.
Hunters flock to this region each fall to stalk whitetail deer, black bear and wild turkey. Increasingly more and more people are taking advantage of opportunities to stalk wildlife with cameras instead of rifles and shotguns.
