Raystown Lake

Overview

Seven Points Recreation area, located in the central region of Raystown Lake, is perfectly situated for outdoor recreation. Within a short walk from every campsite, visitors can find everything from interpretive trails to a visitor center. Plus there's easy access to swimming, boating, fishing hiking, and biking. For more detailed maps and information on the Seven Points Recreation area visit our website.__

Recreation

Boating is always popular at Raystown, but there's more than just boating. Fishing for muskies, small and large mouth bass, brown trout, and many other Pennsylvania species is excellent. Every summer weekend there are education and entertainment programs at the amphitheater. The Greenside Pathway, a recycled rubber tire hiking trail, provides a safe walking route that connects the campgrounds to all of the recreational facilities within Seven Points; and world class mountain biking is available on the Allegrippis Trails and mountain biking skills park near the Visitors Center. Other nearby trails include the Lower Trail (Rails to Trails), the Terrace Mountain Trail, the Old Loggers Trail, and the Mid State Trail.

Facilities

There are six camping loops within Seven Points, with a full service marina available. Each camping loop has a restroom and a playground, and most loops have showers. Campsites are spacious where available and include a picnic table, fire grill, and lantern hanger; most sites offer electric hookups. As a convenient bonus, sites are a mile from groceries, bait, tackle, and gas.

Natural Features

Raystown Lake is located within the ridge and valley province 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 days are pleasant through spring and fall.

Nearby Attractions

Campers can take day trips to the Lincoln Caverns, Altoona Railroaders Museum, Swigart Antique Car Museum, or other nearby attractions. Visit www.raystown.org for local attractions and activities. The nearby city of Huntingdon, 11 miles north, is a good place for restaurants, shopping, and theaters.

Favorite PA campground — the view !!!

Love staying at Seven Points CG.  This Corps part got a spruce up in 2022.  The roads on the point loop were upgraded.

Tough to get waterfront spot during main season, but fall is beautiful here.

Chipmunks are fun to watch.  Point loop is my favorite. Sites 128, 126 126a, 154 are perfect.  Easy access to the lake from your site.  Bath house is up at the top of the hill.  Be prepared for that walk.  

Get water at the dump station on the way in!!! Easier than trying to attach to the spigots on the loop.

Trough State Park nearby is a great place to hike!!

Campground is perfect, clientele often ruins it

Such a scenic and beautiful place to camp and the campground is set up perfectly. On that note, the clientele just ruins it. If hearing adjacent sites having hootenannies, getting loaded, blasting out country music, and screaming all night is your thing, this is your place. Tried to call rangers but only got a message machine. The clientele sucks so much

Beautiful, wooded location - BUT

The sites are mostly well kept, but only electric at site. There are many loops and some WC's do no have showers, so be careful making your res. Sites by the water are closer together than most on the ridges. Water is available at the side of the road, but some of the fixtures are broken. The restaurant is closed.
