Rivers and Lakes In PA
North Central Area

The lakes in PA in the PA wilds and north central region of the state offer fishing and boating opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast.

The Allegheny River runs through a good portion of this region down to the Pittsburgh PA area.

Water skiiers can enjoy various skiing opportunities in this area of Pennsylvania.

In winter, you'll love the gorgeous views of the frozen water as it turns to sparkling crystal glass that dances in the sun.

Take in the serenity and peacefulness of the water in winter.

Allegheny County
Armstrong County PA
