A couple of important items:

4th of July 2021 at Indian Lake

We are looking forward to an exciting weekend at the Lake. The 4th of July is always one the busiest holidays for the Borough. There will be an extravagant fireworks display at dark on Saturday July 3rd. Jump on your boat or find a location on shore to view the display. Thank you, as always, to the Indian Lake Service Corp for putting the event together. We are proud to have one of the best fireworks displays in the area.

Visit  to see food specials and events happening at The Lodge.  JD and Cindy will be performing Friday night July 2nd from 7PM until 10 as an opener to the weekend.

The Marina has a full line of boating inventory and apparel to browse. They will also be featuring food trucks or stop by for ice cream. Events will be updated on their website at as more information is available.

Both the Peninsula Club and Northwinds will be open for a fun filled round of golf. There are no events scheduled so call 814-754-3461 or 814-754-4653 to book a good tee time. You can also visit  or

While you are enjoying the weekend, please help support all of our local commercial businesses. They help make the community a great place to live!

As always, we ask that you respect your neighbors and others here at the Lake. The water and roads will surely be busy and the more we all realize how our actions affect others in the community the better we will all be. Common courtesy goes a long way so that everyone can enjoy their time.
Borough Reorganization and Introducing our New Mayor

There have been some changes in local Borough government over the month of June. Bob Hanson and Scott Hollern have changed positions on Borough Council to facilitate a smoother transition for the 2022 reorganization of Council. Bob has moved from President of Council to Vice President and Scott has stepped into the President position. Bob’s decision not to run for a Council position for the upcoming November election will leave Council with a considerable void. Bob’s dedication and guidance on Council will be surely be missed. He will continue to assist with Planning, IT administration and historical reference as we move forward. A heart felt thank you to Bob for his 12+ years of leadership with Borough government.

On June 28th Jay McClatchy was sworn in to fill an opening as the Borough Mayor. He will fill in the remaining term of Mike Miscoe through the end of 2021. We welcome Jay back to Borough government.  See below for photos of the event.




Thanks, Mike

The Borough would like to thank Mike Miscoe for 23 ½ years on Planning, Council and as our Mayor. He will also be missed. His dedication and guidance have been unwavering over the years and we appreciate his involvement in our local government.
Ski Slalom Course

Council has received numerous concerns from residents regarding improper use of the ski slalom course. Wave runners and jet ski have been seen using the course as an obstacle course. Please be aware that the course is meant for skiing only.

The course/and buoys are registered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. They are the property of the Indian Lake Water Ski Club. Boaters are responsible for any damage that they cause to the buoys or course. Use of wave runners and jet skis can damage the course and cause additional work and expense for the ski club members to repair/replace and relocate moved buoys. We ask that residents use the course for its intended purpose only.

The Indian Lake Police Department closely monitor the area to insure it is being used properly. Please educate members of your family, guests or visitors that the slalom course should only be used by skiers.

Sign Theft

The Indian Lake Borough Roads Crew has had to replace stolen Autistic Person signs on Peninsula Drive 3 times this year. The Indian Lake Borough Police would like to ask residents to be aware of the missing signs (see photo) and report if you happen to see anyone with the signs or if you notice unusual activity in the area.
