About Indian Lake

Indian Lake Borough consists of more than 2000 developed acres of recreational land. It’s a great place for year round living or your mountain vacation hideaway. Indian Lake is a private lake. It is a 5-mile long horseshoe, 750 acres in area with 20 miles of shoreline. In addition to The Lodge, which we like to say is the hub of the lake community, there is the Northwinds Golf Course and Indian Lake Marina within the borough. The Northwinds Peninsula Club is another 18 hole golf course less than 2 miles away and was the very first golf course designed by Arnold Palmer.

Other local attractions to The Lodge are Mountain Ridge ATV Park and Flight 93 Memorial. Indian Lake is also one of the cleanest lakes in Pennsylvania and is great for boating, fishing, swimming, and water skiing during the spring and summer, and a scenic wonderland in the fall and winter. Because it is a private lake, there are some restrictions for guest activities on the lake. If you need more information about Indian Lake and what you are allowed to do when you visit, you can contact the Marina at 814.754.4774, or you can look at their Boat Rental Agreement which has lots of information.
