Directions & Lake History/Factoid
Directions: From Confluence, PA, go .5 miles south on PA 281. From Rt 40 (Markleysburg), coming from West to East, turn left to head North on PA 281, otherwise known as Mae West Road for 8 miles. From Rt 40 (Addison), coming from East to West, turn right on PA 523 and travel approximately 10 miles into Confluence.

Factoid: In the heart of the Laurel Highlands and spanning the Mason-Dixon line between Pennsylvania and Maryland lays Youghiogheny River Lake. Boaters consider Youghiogheny River Lake, with its 16-mile length and channels up to one-half mile wide, the best powerboat, fishing, and water-skiing lake in southwestern Pennsylvania. The tail waters of the dam are one of the few in Pennsylvania open for trout fishing year round and are stocked by the Fish and Boat Commission on a regular basis throughout the spring and summer.
