HomeAbout Us

The Susquehanna Rowing Association (SRA) is a non-profit group formed for the purpose of fostering and stimulating interest in the sport of rowing among individuals and the community, as well as to promote the advantages of rowing as a means of health and physical development.  SRA offers the opportunity to the community to participate in the recreational sport of rowing. 

SRA currently rows at Gifford Pinchot State Park located in northern York County along PA 177 between the towns of Rossville and Lewisberry.  It is a beautiful, 340 acre, calm lake with only electric-motor watercraft, which makes for excellent rowing conditions. The lake is centrally located between York and Harrisburg.  SRA members are from areas in South central PA including Hershey, Carlisle, and even Northern Maryland.

SRA is a 40 member club who mostly scull and have a capability of sweeping with a 4+ and 2+. Membership is open to all regardless of skill level.
