The Bison rowing team operates out of the Bucknell boathouse, which was established in 1998. The rowing facility houses Bucknell's varsity women and club-varsity men, the Susquehanna University club team and the Central Pennsylvania Rowing Association as well. Located on the scenic Susquehanna River, it is less than 10 minutes south of campus at the junction of routes 11 & 15. The Susquehanna is the longest unnavigable river in the country, which means there are no barges or shipping traffic for the team to contend with. The Adam T. Bower Dam, the longest inflatable dam in the world, is located downstream from the boathouse and provides 10 miles of rowable water upstream. The lack of commercial development, along with the 400-foot cliffs of the Shikellamy State Park, provides student-athletes with one of the most beautiful rowing venues in the country.
