Very beautiful lake to kayak or take a boat ride. Remote campsites around the lake accessible by boat or kayak. All water front with firerings and mowed grassy areas. Very relaxing. And yes, good fishing too.

We stayed with friends at a campground close by and loved it. It's quiet, relaxing and just beautiful. Kayaking a must and lots of pictures!

Enjoy a family adventure on Tionesta Lake. The lake provides a large area for boating outside of the wake area. The lake is deep and is good for water skiing, tubing or even kayaking close to shore. Camp along the lake in the wilderness on...More

Good sized lake. We rented a pontoon boat from the on site business. Enjoyed the day boating and swimming from the boat as well as some decent "beach" areas. No sand, it's all rock. Saw plenty of wildlife as well. Appears you can boat in...More
