Andover / Pymatuning Lake KOA Attractions

Pymatuning Lake

The area surrounding Pymatuning was shaped by glaciers more than 14,000 years ago. The land was dotted with dozens of kettle lakes as the ice melted away. Indians were attracted to the area due to its rich wetland habitat and number of wild animals. The first inhabitants around the lake were the Mound Builders. The lake was named for Pihmtomink, the leader of the Lenape tribe. Pymatuning translates as "crooked mouth man's dwelling place".
 Its average width is 1.6 miles with around 70 miles of shoreline. The maximum depth is 35 feet deep. The lake's capacity is 64,275,000,000 gallons of water. The state park has three beaches, seven picnic areas, five boat launches, and 2 hiking trails.
Pymatuning State Park is home to the bald eagle. Several pairs nest on the Pennsylvania side of the park. The park is home to numerous types of fish including walleye, crappie, black bass, bluegill and channel catfish. Stopping at the Spillway is a must! see office for directions hand out
