Looks good on Google Maps- looks like a nice camping area on the water off 7 Points Rd. Also looks like it might get a fair amount of boat traffic, there's a good size marina nearby.

We stayed in the 7-points campground last year. It has electric hook ups only with water hydrants in each camping loop. There is a dump station in one of the loops. The marina and swimming areas are at the bottom of a big hill from the camping areas. Yes all the traffic goes through on a main street. The nature center is very nice. Lots of hiking and biking trails.

Where are you camping?
I went to college in Huntingdon at the north end of the lake. Spent a lot of time at various places around the lake.

I'm staying at the campground at Raystown Lake Resort and Lodge. I have a waterside lot up on Poplar (lot 132 if ya wanna say hi ) that's supposed to have full hook ups. We're going up there 5/ 20 - 23. My g/f's family has been going there for years, but this is my first trip up.

That is the newer of the campgrounds. That time of year it should be nice weather. There will be a lot of boats on the weekends. Enjoy the lake. She's cold!

Raystown Lake is awesome! Been there many times. www.reserveamerica.com is the Governments website to reserve a campsite at the seven points area. The point or pcam is the absolute best area to camp. (Site 128,124) However, I think is first come first serve this time of year. The raystown resort is a bit more crowded than Seven Points. But it is really nice there too! Also, if you do go to the Seven Points Area, they just opened up a world class mountain bike trail if that is of any interest to anyone.

DETAILS! DETAILS! We love biking, but we only have street bikes. Do they rent them up there?

Mountain Bike trail. Google Allegrippis Trail. They even have a video of a rider on the trail I Believe. For the advid Bike Riders it is a must! No rentals that I'm aware of.

What an INCREDIBLE 4 DAYS! Wehiked Trough Valley and rode the Rails to Trails. It rained off and on Saturday, so we went around Huntingdon and over to 7 Points Marina to see the Carp. I have never seen anything like that in my life! There has to be hundreds of them, and they literally shove each other clean out of the water chasing the dog food!!! On Sunday we went to the 1000 steps. 1000 my @$$! There's at least 1200 LOL We got off the beaten path and found one of the old narrow guage rail beds up top of the mountain. We're paying dearly for it now though But it was definitely worth it! The campground was nice, the people friendly, and the ares was GREAT! I'll definitely be heading back there again
