Sandy Township is the perfect place to stay for your outdoor vacation. Located within the Pennsylvania Wilds and just miles away from Parker Dam and S.B. Elliott State Parks, staying in one of the area hotels just makes sense. There are plenty of things to do outdoors, like going camping and hiking in the State Parks, State Forests, the Allegheny National Forest or seeing Pennsylvania’s largest elk herd in nearby Benezette, Elk County.
You could play golf at one of our excellent area courses:
- Treasure Lake (two 18-hole courses)
- DuBois Country Club (18 hole)
- Scottish Heights (18 hole)
- Beechwoods (18 hole)
- Kenterra (9 hole)
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.
There are several area 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. Nearby, Kyle Lake is a 165-acre lake that is regulated by the state of Pennsylvania. It allows for public boating and fishing. Also, nearby Curwensville Lake offers great public fishing and no horsepower restrictions on boats.
