Your guide to Canadohta Lake

All About Canadohta Lake

Located about 30 miles south of Erie in northeastern Pennsylvania, Canadohta Lake is a tranquil spot where low-slung summer cottages, small wooden docks, and patches of emerald-green grass punctuate the seemingly endless woodlands. As the second-largest natural lake in Pennsylvania, it is a popular place for swimming, boating, and year-round fishing. The small village of Canadohta Lake provides everything you need for a fun vacation, including restaurants, shops, and kid-friendly attractions like miniature golf, roller skating, and a giant water slide that drops you directly into the lake.

The surrounding areas are home to historic small towns like Union City and Spartansburg, and you can also find many Amish communities nearby. In under 30 minutes, it’s possible to reach the Erie National Wildlife Refuge, which serves as a home for many species of migrating birds and offers short loop trails that put you closer to the park’s pristine nature and captivating wildlife.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Canadohta Lake

Thanks to a wide array of activities throughout the year, it’s always a good time to book Canadohta Lake rentals. The summer months have the warmest, sunniest weather, and you will find the lake buzzing with activity as people head out onto the water in boats, kayaks, and pontoons. The temperatures begin to dip in fall, and the leaves surrounding the park change into a sea of reds and yellows. In winter, the temperature drops significantly, and by the end of December, the lake may begin to freeze.

Canadohta Lake is extremely quiet for most of the winter, allowing you to enjoy the lake in solitude. In February, things get a little busier as the annual ice fishing festival brings in anglers of all ages hoping to pull in northern pike, muskie, walleye, perch, and crappie. By March, things start to thaw out, and during the spring, the trees begin to flower.

Top things to do in Canadohta Lake

Canadohta Lake Park

Canadohta Lake Park is the perfect place to lounge on a bench or picnic on the grass with an ice cream cone in hand. The nearby streets are lined with mom-and-pop restaurants, a small general store, and souvenir stands, and at sunset you can wander down to the shoreline where grass meets sand and watch the orange hues disappear behind the water.

Union City

Located less than 15 minutes from the shores of Canadohta Lake, Union City is a quiet rural town whose historical brick buildings date back to the early 20th century, when the town was home to many factories and mills. The town museum gives an interesting look into the history of Union City, which is symbolic of the many small cities across the region that got left behind when factories closed.

Amish country

The area surrounding Canadohta Lake is home to a large Amish population. You can visit many of the local Amish-run businesses, including restaurants, farm stands, and some of the best oak furniture shops in northeastern Pennsylvania.
