Relax in charming Raystown Lake

As the Appalachian ridges of Pennsylvania rise to the east, and sweeping swathes of forest hug the shorelines, Raystown Lake sloshes in its own little valley some 3 hours' drive out of Pittsburgh. The remote location is what imparts the charm, with everything from mountain-man cabins beckoning in the woods to romantic Raystown Lake vacation rentals spilling over the water's edge on the menu. Days can be spent wandering the leafy nature trails, bobbing on pontoons over the lake itself, flitting between the rustic campsites, or heading out on hunting expeditions through the thick woodlands.


Rest and recreation on Raystown Lake

If you've been pining for that well-deserved dose of R&R, then you've come to the right place. Raystown Lake vacation rentals offer a chance to break away from the big cities of the eastern US and kick back on tree-shrouded decks, stargaze under clear skies, or sooth the muscles in bubbling hot tubs while chirping birds flit overhead. Others will have doorstep access to the leafy walking trails of the Appalachian region, or private jetties from which to launch lackadaisical canoeing outings between the wooded banks. And for adrenaline junkies? Cave systems aplenty mean spelunking is always an option.


Winter or summer in Raystown Lake

There's no question that Raystown Lake vacation rentals are at their most popular during the summer months, between June and August. That's when people from all over Pennsylvania flock to splash in the water and wallow on the shady trails that ring the lake. However, other times of year offer their own enchantments. Winter has snow-shoeing and snowmobile tracks, and the timber cabins are surely at their coziest then. And then fall comes, with the beautiful kaleidoscope of changing colors that occurs in the Appalachian forests.

Natural features

Raystown Lake is forests and ridges

As it snakes its way through the heartlands of southern Pennsylvania, Raystown Lake offers up a showcase of what's so beautiful about Appalachia's backcountry. Forests cascade like blankets of greenery all the way from the top of the low-lying hills to the banks of the water. Occasionally, islands poke their grove-topped heads over the surface too, and herons and bald eagles all flit through the airs. Some of the best natural wonders are shared between the Raystown Lake Recreation Area and Terrace Mountain, which both have hiking trails, creeks, wild turkeys, and more.
