Camping Review: Seven Points Camping & Marina

Camping, fishing, hiking, kayaking and boating all in one place.

Seven Points Camping and Marina is our go to spot for those last minute spontaneous camping weekends. It’s located in the beautiful Raystown Lake region. We have spent many weekends enjoying the activities available. Run and maintained by the US Army Corp of Engineers, Seven Points has become a getaway for locals seeking to escape for a weekend as well as those from out of state seeking a family vacation.

Raystown Lake is a reservoir in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. It is the largest lake that is entirely within Pennsylvania. The original lake was built by the Simpson family of Huntingdon as a hydroelectric project. The lake stretches 27.96 miles.
