Boat Dock

The Boat Dock at Muddy Run is your access point to all the fun waiting on the water. Whether you're paddling around and enjoying time on the water, or tossing a line trying to reel in a bite, however you need to set sail, we've got you covered!

Please Note: Lake usage requires the observation of all PA Fish & Boat Commission regulations, including the use of life jackets from 11/1-4/30 for all boaters.


Muddy Run's Lake has a variety of popular game fish such as trout (stocked twice a year), crappies, catfish, blue gills, sun fish, large and small mouth bass, and carp. Live bait (no minnows) is available for purchase at the boat dock.

A boat launch is available for a small fee ($5.00) for anyone not already enjoying our campground facilities. At Muddy Run's Boat Dock we have rowboats (with electric motors), kayaks, & canoes available to rent. Our annual boat launch fee is $100

Good luck catching the energetic fish in Muddy Run Lake. Happy fishing & safe boating!
