LAKE ALDRED is part of the Susquehanna River in south-central Pennsylvania. The lake is bound between the Safe Harbor and Holtwood hydroelectric dams and boat access is available from both York and Lancaster Counties. The Pennsylvania Power and Light Company, who regulate water flow through the dams for public recreation from May 15 through September 15, own the land around the lake.

The Lake Aldred portion of the Susquehanna River runs between high wooded hills that provide a natural windbreak from east and westerly winds. The Pinnacle Overlook is a great vantage point to survey the lake. It's rocky outcropping rises over 200 feet above the lake. The lake is also known for its collection of islands, which form a natural locus for recreating boaters. The largest, Weiss Island, is the home of the Lake Aldred Wakeboard & Ski Club. During the ski season the club meets on the west side of the island, North of the slalom course.

As with any boating activity it is important to know the water you boat in. The seasoned boaters of Lake Aldred know the bottom features that form hazards to navigation. We highly recommend contacting us about known hazards or seeking advice from experienced people at the launch ramps. Pennsylvania Power and Light also posts pamphlets at the ramps showing areas to avoid. For your safety, please take advantage of all sources of information before venturing out on the lake.
