Hemlock Lake - Early Spring Sunset

Hemlock Lake is a 62-acre lake located in Indiana County's northeast corner. The lake serves as the centerpiece of this 205 acre park leased to Indiana County by the PA Fish & Boat Commission. The PF&BC refers to the lake as Straight Run Lake, after the small stream that feeds the lake. The County chose to name the park Hemlock Lake Park in recognition of the County's Christmas tree industry and for the numerous hemlock trees that surround the lakefront.
