Located south of Erie in Edinboro, this 245 acre lake can be a great afternoon getaway and offers a variety of great angling opportunities. The lake offers two free boat launch ramps with public parking, a fishing pier designed specifically for persons with disabilities, and a major playground complex for the youngsters.
Boating is unlimited horsepower, allowing water skiing and the use of personal watercraft. The borough has public dock spaces available, which can be rented on a daily, weekly, or annual basis.
Fishing Edinboro Lake can be a real smorgasbord, species in the lake include largemouth and smallmouth bass, muskellunge, panfish and walleye. The Commission stocks the lake with juvenile muskellunge and walleye.
Below the dam Edinboro Lake flows into Conneauttee Creek, part of the French Creek drainage. A section of this trout stream is designated fishing for children 12 year old and under, as well as handicapped individuals.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
