Boat, fish, or just enjoy the scenery.


A five acre man-made lake provides opportunity for boating, fishing and enjoying a beautiful natural habitat. During designated hours guests may enjoy paddleboats, canoes and kayaks. Fishing is permitted in the lake and in nearby Powell's Creek. A Pennsylvania fishing license may be required in accordance with state law.
