Hunters Lake

For those who like to kayak or fish, Hunters Lake is a best kept secret.  Covering 117 acres near the Loyalsock State Forest, the lake features wooded, curving, undeveloped shorelines with views of North Mountain, the second highest mountain in northeast Pennsylvania.  The lake is known for its scenery and serenity.

There is one boat ramp and only electric motors, or non-powered boats, are allowed.

The lake is stocked with trout and a variety of warmwater species like largemouth bass can also be found.

Hunters Lake is the perfect place to kayak due to its scenery, isolation, and uncrowded nature.

Nearby is Eagles Mere, or you can hike to Angel Falls and the Kettle Creek Gorge.

I visited on a sunny day with puffy cumulus clouds.  The still water reflected the sky perfectly as reeds and lilypads adorned the surface.  I returned after my hike for the sunset as the horizon turned to gold, spreading its light across the water.  It was beautiful.  Lightning bugs then appeared with fluorescent trails across the twilight sky.

If you’re looking for a day on the water away from it all, go to Hunters Lake.
