The Raystown Lake Region Of Pennsylvania

The Raystown Lake Region of Pennsylvania is your best kind of get-out-of-doorsy place. So pack up your boots and fishing pole, dust off your bikes and kayaks — or rent them here — and get ready for adventure. Outdoor recreation, culture, history, scenery, art and education are some of our top draws. For those looking for a scenic wilderness vacation, Raystown Lake’s 118 mile shoreline will not disappoint. Best of all, you’ll find all the amenities of civilization just a stone’s throw away!

Experience the beauty of the region without ever reaching for your wallet. There are many spots to relax and unwind that are free to access like Raystown Lake, 3 State Parks, Juniata College Peace Chapel, road touring routes for bicycles or motorcycles, the Pennsylvania Trail of the Year: Standing Stone Trail, Allegrippis Trails singletrack, Raystown Mountain Bike Skills Park, and the Greenside Pathway.

In addition to all the outdoor activities, you can spend your days exploring our living history and local lore at the Swigarts Antique Automobile Museum, Isett Heritage Museum, Lincoln Caverns, Rockhill Trolley Museum and more. Plus, kids of all ages will love the Wild River Water Park at the lake and DelGrosso’s Amusement Park just a short drive away.

Our area also boasts great diners, a nice selection of shops, and is easily accessible from many major metro areas. In fact, Huntingdon, PA is a stop on the Amtrak Pennsylvanian line.
