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!

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
