Pennsylvania Lakes - click for indexLocated in Washington County, Dutch Fork Lake is a 91-acre (normal surface area) Commonwealth-owned impoundment located approximately two miles northwest of Claysville in Donegal Township. A dam located on Dutch Fork, a tributary of Dutch Fork (Buffalo) Creek, creates the lake. The impoundment is very popular with outdoor recreation enthusiasts in southwestern Pennsylvania. It was constructed in 1959 and is currently managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public recreation.
