Lake Raystown - Entriken, PA
Lake Raystown Resort:
This year's family vacation was to one of our favorite places we go camping, Lake Raystown, Pa. The 32-mile long Raystown Lake is a popular destination for all water enthusiasts. We enjoyed boating, tubing, fishing, kayaking and hiking during our stay.
Raystown Lake is a reservoir in Huntingdon County, PA. The original lake was built by the Simpson family of Huntingdon as a hydroelectric project. Raystown Lake is a 8,300-acre lake and was completed in 1973 by the Army Corps of Engineers. The lake was created primarily to control floods, provide electricity, and support recreational activities.

The Marina Cafe :
The Marina Café offers old time favorites in a casual setting overlooking the beautiful Marina. They have a small menu but their food was delicious and our waitress was wonderful.
