Visitors to the project will discover topography ranging from the rolling foothills of the Laurel Highlands, from which the headwaters of Loyalhanna Creek flow, to the steep, wooded hillsides and ravines found in the vicinity of the dam. In the midst of these surroundings, visitors to Loyalhanna Lake can enjoy many outdoor activities either on, or around the water such as canoeing, fishing, boating, hiking and biking. You can also enjoy a picnic at the pavilion that is equipped with picnic tables, charcoal grills, drinking fountains and restrooms. There is a beautiful campground with 44 campsites at the upper end of the lake at the Bush Recreation Area. 12 of these campsites have water and electricity hookups and are equipped for larger RVs. All sites have adequate tent space, a picnic table, lantern holder and fire ring. The campground also contains restroom facilities, showers, a playground and volleyball court.
