Imagine the sun or moon glistening upon the water, and YOU ARE HERE...in Raystown Country, home of the largest man-made lake in Pennsylvania.

Raystown Lake is a reservoir and is the largest lake that is entirely within Pennsylvania. The original lake was built by the Simpson family of Huntingdon as a hydroelectric project. The current 8,300-acre Raystown Lake was completed in 1973 by the Army Corps of Engineers. The lake was created primarily to control floods, provide electricity, and support recreational activities.

Boating, swimming, mountain biking, scuba diving, and fishing are all popular activities. There are many campsites on the lake, as well as several boat launches, restaurants, and trails. Firework displays are held at the Raystown Lake Resort on Memorial Day Weekend, July 3, and the Sunday night before Labor Day. The fireworks at the resort are watched from the lake but can also be seen from the Pennsylvania Route 994 bridge; the resort is just south of this bridge.

Enjoy Huntingdon County's beautiful scenery - the three state forests, trout-stocked streams, caves to explore, trails to hike and bike, and some of the best hunting and fishing in the state. The heritage is rich with farming, mining, railroading, automotive and other history. Visit the museums and five historic districts.

Choose from a variety of restaurants and accommodations. Come visit the friendly folks of Huntingdon County. Bring your camera to capture the moments. You may even want to stay a lifetime.
