Raystown Lake is a lake in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. The largest lake that is entirely within Pennsylvania, it was created by the United States Army Corps of Engineers around 1913 by the damming of the Raystown Branch Juniata River which created a shallow lake in the river valley. Part of the town of Aitch is now under the level of the lake. The current 8,300-acre (34 km2) lake Raystown Lake was created in the 1970s when the Army Corps of Engineers built the current dam. The lake was created primarily to control floods, provide electricity and support recreational activities.
