The Seven Points Campground, in the central region of Raystown Lake, is perfectly situated for outdoor recreation. Within a short walk, campers can find everything from interpretive trails to a visitor center. Plus theres easy access to swimming, to boating and fishing. Natural Features: Raystown Lake is in the ridge and valley providence of Pennsylvania. The lakeshore is lined with an old oak-hickory forest giving way to mountain ridges and cliffs. The man-made lake is fed by the Raystown Branch tributary of the Juniata River and is the largest lake completely in the state of Pennsylvania. Recreation season temperatures range from the 60s to 90s, with three to four inches of rain per month. The nights are cool and the are days pleasant through spring and fall. Recreation: Fishing is excellent with muskies, small and large mouth bass and brown trout, abundant in the lake. Kids will enjoy activities at the amphitheater including Critter Night and Hartslog Day, a one-day annual heritage event celebrated in October. Nearby trails, including Lower Trail (Rails to Trails), Terrace Mountain Trail, Old Loggers Trail and Mid State Trail, attract plenty of traffic. Facilities: The spacious campground offers a full service marina. Each loop has a playground and showers. Many sites offer electric hookups. As as a convenient bonus, sites are a mile from groceries, bait, tackle and gas. Nearby Attractions: Take a day trip to the Lincoln and Indian Caverns, Altoona Railroaders Museum or the Swigart Antique Car Museum. The nearby city of Huntingdon, 11 miles north, is a good place to stop for restaurants, shopping and theaters.
The lake is so clean and refreshing and we have such beautiful views from our camp site. We went down to the swim beach and our kiddo made sand castles and swam in the clear water. We can’t wait to come back soon!
We stayed at the Senoia campground in Seven Points for memorial day this year with our pop up. The lake front sites are beautiful and well maintained, but difficult to book. Bathrooms are decent and clean. This is our go to campsite for a quick weekend not too far from home.
The campground was very nice. The spaces were all very level, and many were waterfront. Each loop has a playground and bathhouse. The visitors center has a great educational area inside and a nature trail outside. Across from the visitors center is a mountain bike park. Unfortunately there was a pipeline being put right through the middle and equipment/workers everywhere and a generator that ran all night.
Ridge camp is the furthest away from the marina and the public swimming area. However it's the closest to the Allegrippis Trail system and from the entrance of the camp loop there is a trail head!
Big spacious sites that make pitching a tent easy with water available just a few sites away no matter where you stay. Nice fire rings and plenty of firewood for sale along route 26 or seven points road. The 40 some sites in the Ridge camp are a mix of shaded and open sites Large trailers can fit most sites
this upper loop is also the quietest of the loops and although there were still plenty of boaters in the camp there were just as many bikers. Raystown is a huge boating destination. During daylight hours you can still hear the boats on the lake.
Dogs are allowed
The bathhouse (one in the loop) was clean with 3 showers. A playground near the sites at the entrance also.
A good choice for a weekend in the water or on the trails. This loop is our favorite of the choices at Raystown.
With a few loops to choose from you can decide to stay down closer to the lake or just up the hill closer to the Allegrippis Trails. IMBA standard built trails that are open year round and in any weather.
Large public swimming are at the lake below along with fishing and boating on the huge lake.
The mtb trails begin just above the upper camp loops and provide a full day of fast flowing singletrack.
Shower & bathhouses have always been clean and well stocked.
Water availble in the campground loop and actually tasted good enough to use for hydration needs during our rides.
Firewood was availble just a few minutes before entering the campground and was cheap
