The Lackawaxen River is a 31.3-mile-long (50.4 km) tributary of the Delaware River in northeastern Pennsylvania in the United States. The river flows through a largely rural area in the northern Pocono Mountains, draining an area of approximately 598 square miles (1,550 km2).
Its source is in the borough of Prompton in western Wayne County, at the confluence of the West Branch and Van Auken Creek. It flows past Honesdale and Hawley, where it is joined from the southwest by Wallenpaupack Creek. It continues east and joins the Delaware at Lackawaxen. East of Honesdale, it was deepened as part of the Delaware and Hudson Canal project.
West Branch Lackawaxen River
The West Branch, approximately 21.5 miles (34.6 km) long, rises in northern Wayne County near Orson and flows south-southeast. After a confluence with Johnson Creek, it flows southeast through Prompton Lake reservoir, to its confluence with Van Auken Creek to form the main stem.
