    Cooper's Lake Campground - 10-acre lake

Immerse yourself with the ultimate versatility of Cooper’s Lake.  More than 450 acres with a variety of terrains will suit your needs, include a 10-acre lake, wooded areas and mowed fields.

Among the land lies a ‘battlefield”, a large, open area perfect for hosting archery tournaments. Heading into winter, Cooper’s Lake provides an optimal trail for both dogs and owners for a dryland dog sled race, a unique event designed to race dogs before snow falls.

The rolling hills, countryside and backcountry trails contributes to a challenging obstacle course, making Cooper’s Lake a recurring destination for Pittsburgh’s Tough Mudder. This hardcore, 10-12 mile obstacle course includes mud run challenges designed to test strength, stamina, teamwork and mental grit.

There are 100+ electric and water campsites, 50 of which are full hook-up. Water posts are accessible throughout a majority of the area.  The campground store sells camping supplies, comfort items, wood, propane, ice, food, drinks, candy, ice cream and more.  There is also a laundromat with coin-operated washers and dryers.

Other features include:

  • Exhibition hall
  • Picnic pavilion
  • Small barn
  • On-site catering
  • A castle!
  • ATM
  • Wi-fi

The Cooper family has over 40 years of experience helping groups host their events, from sporting events to festivals and unique gatherings.
