The Stonycreek Rendezvous is one of the best whitewater festivals in the country. Held at Greenhouse Park in Johnstown, PA, you can set up your tent on the shores of the Stonycreek River and surf the park wave under the lights at night while listening to local bands and the stomping of dancing feet as the river passes by.
