Good motor boating areas with some no wake areas. Sailing winds are not predictable. Many day use boat docks or long term rental of docks. Good views of wildlife especially eagles. Some food is available at 7 Points or the resort. Camping areas are bet obtained by reservation on weekends and holidays. Visitor center and evening programs are available.

Get a lakefront campsite if you can, but don't hesitate to go if one isn't available. We did manage to get one right on the lake, but we explored all the campgrounds on the northern part of the lake and couldn't find ANY that we'd avoid. The Army Corp of Engineers did a GREAT job with this place! It's extremely... More

Late night arrival, and staff was annoyed that I was even checking in. The cabin was very, very cheaply put together and the laminate flooring was pealing back around all of the edges of the floor. For the price I was expecting a nicer place.

We have a camp in the Raystown area and love the area! The scenery is absolutely beautiful, no matter what time of year. So much to do, from hunting and fishing to boating and hiking and much more. The people in the area are friendly and helpful. There are a lot of wonderful attractions in the area as well. It's... More

Most fantastic trails - more miles than most can ride in a weekend! Fast fun rolling trails, as well as some leg burning climbs and technical twists! Bikers paradise!!

Visited Raystown Lake area for one day. Nice drive from Lancaster County and just a 3 - 3/12 hour drive. Visited people renting a cabin for a week. Lake was wonderful - big and calm that day. Fun time tubing, swimming and fishing. Carp and ducks at the marina were fun to watch when children fed them with pet food... More

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!
