There is a lot to do in the Sandy Township area. Things indoors like movies, live plays, museums, bowling, shopping, and dining to the outdoors with swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, and camping. This area of Pennsylvania is full of things to see and do. As part of the PA Wilds, you’ll be amazed at the outdoor wildlife that you might find around the area. Not far from here in neighboring Elk County is located the largest wild elk herd in Pennsylvania, the Benezette Elk.
The township contains a 12-acre recreational park, which offers rental pavilions, a playground, volleyball court, walking paths, a groomed and fenced baseball/softball field, concession stand, and full running water bathrooms. The park is open seasonally from May through October each year. During the seasonally open times, the park is unlocked and available from dawn to dusk and is attended part time by a maintenance official.
We have several lakes and streams that are great for fishing and boating. Treasure Lake features three privately owned lakes by the Treasure Lake Property Owners Association. From the largest, named after the development, at 379 acres to the smallest, Little Flipper Lake, at 4.5 acres. The largest of the lakes is designed for motorboats, has a fully stocked marina, and two beaches. The middle sized lake, Bimini Lake, is 277 acres and is limited to 9.9hp or less boats. The smallest, is for 12 and under or 65 and older fishing. Sabula Lake is a 38.4-acre private lake that is owned by the Sabula Lake Homeowners Association. Juniata Lake is used for recreation purposes such as fishing. It has been been in existence since 1934. Its normal surface area is five acres and is owned by the City of Dubois.
