Otter Lake Camp Resort presents a full range of fun activities for the whole family. Activities change with the seasons, so you will never lack for things to do regardless of the timing of your stay. In Spring and Fall, planned weekend activities include softball and volleyball games, ceramics on Saturdays, fire truck rides, movies, and Bingo. Of course, holidays such as Easter, Mother’s Day, and Halloween have their own special themed events. In the Summer, the resort’s Activity Director plans daily activities for the whole family, including softball, pickleball, volleyball, kickball, soccer, fishing contests, arts & crafts, and more. Adults and kids alike can participate in our archery and ceramics classes. There are also a daily fire truck ride and two Bingo sessions per week. On Summer weekends, you will enjoy entertainment with live bands and DJs on Friday and Saturday nights, church services on Sundays, and much, much more.

If organized activities are not to your liking, there are plenty of fun things to do on your own at Otter Lake. No license is required for fishing in our well-stocked 60-acre spring-fed lake. The lake has bass, pickerel, perch, sunfish and catfish. Our lake is catch and release only. There are row boats, canoes, kayaks and pedal boats for rent by the hour, day, or week. You may also bring your own boat free of charge, remembering that Pennsylvania state law requires life jackets for each person and a whistle or horn in each boat. You are responsible for following all Pennsylvania boating rules and regulations. Electric motors are permitted on registered boats, but not gasoline motors.
We have swimming at three locations. Our outdoor pool has a grassy lawn area for sunning, a diving area with a diving board, a kiddie pool and splash park. On the lake, there is a sandy beach with a roped off swimming area. The heated indoor pool is Spring, Summer and Fall, with limited hours in the Spring and Fall. A sauna and 2 whirlpools are also located at the indoor pool area.
There are 3 pickle ball courts, 2 tennis courts, 2 racquetball courts, a volleyball court, and a basketball court – most sport courts have lights for night use. Two shuffleboard courts and horseshoe pits are also available. We lend out sports equipment with a cash deposit; however, you must supply (or purchase from us) your own tennis, racquet, or pickle balls. We have four playgrounds in different areas of the campground, ensuring that your children will not have to go far to have fun.
