We wanted to have a family fun vacation and after visiting Lake Raystown we are so happy that we came here. The lake is so beautiful and clean and our 17 and 13 year olds loved it. What a must for family fun!

Unlike most people, we did not attend Raystown Lake for fishing or camping. We were there for a reunion and were delighted by the beauty and all it had to offer. We stayed at the lodge, ate at the Marina, and took a ride on the Proud Mary.

Let me be clear: Lake Raystown is one of the best things I've discovered in the Huntingdon County area. The lake is huge and there are endless possibilities. You can rent house boats, you can kayak, swim, fish - the sky's the limit. There are dozens of beautiful hiking trails as well, and the landscape views are out of this... More

A huge lake full of fish. Most people come here for the good fishing that there is to offer here. Boats are able to be launched into the lake.

I've been camping at Raystown since I was 18 months old (I'm now 35). We go almost every year and have a blast. When we go to leave, I always get teary-eyed because I now live 4 hours away and miss it terribly... this is my happy place. We camp at Susquehannock campground... always have, always will. There is no... More

We were on our way back from our road trip to Canada and decided to spend a night in PA. Then we found a Fairfield Inn in the lake area. What a wonderful find for us! We spent a few hours exploring the Visitor's center and the recreation area. And we fell in love with this place. The Visitor's center... More

Campground was clean and sites were some of the largest we have ever seen. Enough space for 2 campers and they were gravel/level. Bathrooms were clean. Park Rangers drove by frequently. Another family member was in site next to us left for 2 hours with their dog in the camper and returned with a noise ordinance ticket on the camper.... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a visit to Raystown Lake for the first time. We stayed in a king premium room in the lodge and were very satisfied with our room. There was a small kitchenette with microwave, small fridg (no freezer) and sink. We were a bit disappointed that, although they had a Kuerig coffee maker... More

I almost want to say this is the worst place ever to keeps the crowds away but this place is awesome. Undeveloped! Doesn't get much better.
