History of Riversport

Originally known as River Paths in the late 1970’s, the operations moved across the river and evolved into Riversport during the early 1980’s. Since the mid 80’s, Riversport has been a family owned business and premier instructional paddling school with a retail store located along the majestic Youghiogheny River in Confluence, Pennsylvania. We have a knowledgeable staff of ACA certified instructors, young National Geographic sponsored paddlers, professional ski instructors, and teachers that provide safe and positive learning experiences on the water. Our rental location specializes in recreation on the Youghiogheny River and Lake with stable Kayaks, stable SUPs and relaxing Rafting trips.


Our main store, instructional, and rental location is right next to the Youghiogheny Bridge on 281. We are across the river from the Outflow Campground, and next to the Lucky Dog Café.
