The Raystown Lake you have come to know and love was not built in a day. Rather, it has been changing and evolving since its completion 50 years ago. The area has seen plenty of growth from its opening as just a dam to its current state with hydroelectric facilities, 11 boat launches, 14 playgrounds and over 200 picnic sites. Let’s take a journey through some of the last 50 years’ highlights.

With 50 years under Raystown Lake’s belt, naming every last development from its history could be an entire book. The 50th anniversary of Raystown Lake Project’s dedication is only two weeks away and plenty of events are going on to commemorate. Make sure to keep an eye on the events calendar so you don’t miss out!
