I was with a group of seniors for a luncheon cruise on the lake and to see the leaves changing colors. It was raining and cloudy. The leaves had not changed and were still very green. I think the boat was The Proud Mary; we had a wonderful lunch and rode over most of the lake seeing mostly the green... More

We booked a short getaway at a cottage near the lake last weekend. We were astonished that this beautiful lake and well-developed resort area was this close to home. We are native Pennsylvanians and we had never been there. We expected a dinky little lake, like so many of the others. Wow! Raystown Lake is huge. Since we camp every... More

We have been visiting Raystown Lake for over 30 years and is a late summer/early fall family tradition of ours, which has now expanded from our immediate family to extended family and friends visiting together. First, it should be known that there are two main places where there are a variety of accommodation options. 1) The US Army Core of... More

Gorgeous lake surrounded by beautiful hills of PA! The Lake and Marina offer anything you want to do on the water. Boating, fishing, house boats, camping, trails, and swimming. Trough Creek state park is right on the lakes boarders, and that has plenty of hiking trails to water falls, and balanced rock. We had a great time camping at one... More

Raystown is by far my favorite lake in pa. The lake is so large it would take you days to explore it all and experience all there is to do and see from tubing, skiing, cliff diving, swimming or fishing and thats just on the water. Then you have the all the alligippis trails and amazing views.

Beautiful lake surrounded by gorgeous scenery! Come to the lake for family trips, boating, camping, hiking & biking trails, swimming, fishing, and so much more. The local marina holds nature classes, concerts and much more every weekend. Local campgrounds accommodate all from tents to campers at very reasonable prices. We are a semi local family who spends many weekends on... More

Splendor, majestic, pristine waters, surrounded by lush foliage. Rocky cliffs over looking the clear and clear water of this man made lake started in 1905. So much to do I will leave it to you, but if you like lake this is a mush. Take a dinner cruse, rent a boat for the day, walk the trails, enjoy a picnic,... More

Take the boat cruise... a great way to see the entire lake and learn how it was formed and its real purpose in flood control as well as recreation. Kudos to the Army Corps of Engineers!!

Stayed at the Ridge loop campground which was closest to the Allegripis trails. Nice clean camp and bath rooms. Riding was amazing! Awesome well kept trails. Only downside is your a few miles from a store if you need something and no real camp store on premise.
