Recreational opportunities abound here at
Kinzua Lake, the Allegheny Reservoir,
formed by the Kinzua Dam
more than a
half-century ago
. Home to record-setting
fish catches it is the largest inland body of
water in the state of Pennsylvania. The U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers estimates its size
at 12,000 acres and depths of 50 to 150 feet.

This is where anglers come every September for the
Pennsylvania State Fishing Championship. Located in
remote northwest Pennsylvania, near Warren,  it is entirely
surrounded by the Allegheny National Forest, the Seneca
Nation, and New York's Allegany State Park. It also formed
the Allegheny National Recreation Area by an act
of Congress in 1964. Enjoy our
beaches, hiking paths,
marinas, and scenic drives. Welcome!

It is estimated the Kinzua Lake area receives a million visits
every year from bikers, cyclists, hikers, anglers, boaters,
campers, bird watchers, photographers, and paddlers. The
Kinzua Dam resulted in the Allegheny National Recreation
Area which contains Pennsylvania's first wilderness lands. It
is the site of the Allegheny National Forest, headquartered
in nearby
Warren PA.
