The town of Huntingdon was chosen in 2009 as the coolest small town in Pennsylvania and the 5th coolest small town in America by viewers and subscribers of Budget Travel, Inc. a national travel agency. Huntingdon combines local craftspeople, small town charm, many National Registry homes and friendly people into a delightful, relaxing experience not often found today.
If you enjoy boating, hiking, camping or mountain biking you'll love the Raystown Lake area. The Alligrippis Trails at Raystown Lake, built by the International Mountain Bicycling Association, is a premier 30+ mile experience and considered one of the best trail systems in the Eastern United States.
Raystown Lake has no privately owned lakefront property. In fact the only development you'll see on Raystown Lake are two boat anchorages, seven boat ramps and several campgrounds that have leased land from the Army Corps of Engineers. With Raystown Lake, the Corps has decided to retain ownership to the tops of the surrounding mountains to control the watershed and protect the quality of the water in Raystown Lake. The upside is that access to Raystown Lake from surrounding homes and cabins is usually only 5-15 minutes. And since there are no developments on Raystown Lake, it always has the feel of being secluded and retains its pristine natural beauty. If you're sick of crowds and development sprawl, come to Raystown Lake and Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania!
