The village overlooks Equinunk Creek flowing into the Upper Delaware River, preserved and unspoiled by the families that have lived on the river for centuries. While Equinunk is situated on the southern shore, the northern shore carries a commercial, single-track rail line, in operation since 1869. Due to its proximity to the tracks, cargo train enthusiasts from around the country come to Equinunk to view 50+ car trains roll along the winding Delaware River.
Visitors will encounter the famous the Little Equinunk Bridge, also known as Kellam's Bridge built in 1889. Just above the bridge, Soaring Eagle Campground welcomes travelers to the natural, peaceful beauty of the scenic Upper Delaware River. Marvel at the wildlife and even spot a soaring eagle or two nesting nearby. They have accommodations for tent, trailer, or RV camping, and offer a full day of canoeing, tubing, or some of the best fishing along the river, with shad in the early spring, scrappy, small mouth bass, trout, and walleye.
Further from the river, visitors will find the nostalgic Hunts General Store, as well as the Equinunk Methodist Church, where one can hear one of the most beautiful renditions of the Greensleeves version of 'Oh, Holy Night' at the famous Christmas service. Duck Harbor Antiques dazzles visitors with 12 rooms of finds and collectibles in an 1850’s era farm house. For history buffs, the Equinunk Historical Society headquarters in the Calder House Museum are a must see. The white clapboard house was built over 200 years ago, exhibiting the Greek Classic Revival architecture style. The Historical Society has also worked to preserve the Joel Hill Water-Powered Sawmill, built just after the civil war and remaining in operation until 1974, originally powered by a water wheel which washed away in the Pumpkin Flood of 1903.
C&S Stables offers a great way to bond with animal and nature. Renowned for affordable quality horses, horseback riding, boarding, and a tack shop the stables offer a horse camp, shows, trailer, gates, pens, riding lessons, trail rides, training, pony rides, and more. Kids can find activity in the outdoors at two long running camps, Camp Equinunk, founded in 1920, and Camp Blue Ridge, founded in 1923, which bring campers and talented instructors from all over the world every year.
Nearby Duck Harbor Pond is great for both soft and hard water fishing with catches of large and small mouth bass, pike, calico, and blue gill. On the far shore, two gated communities offer modern luxuries to seasonal and permanent residents. The Paddocks at Duck harbor is a community developed just for the horse enthusiast and the Woods at Duck Harbor is a woodland residential community allows homeowners to enjoy the natural amenities and recreational opportunities provided by the diverse offerings of the environment, without giving up the luxuries of modern technology.
An inviting mixture of nature and activities, history and modern life call you to Equinunk.
