Duman Lake County Park is the only county-owned recreation park in Cambria County.  The park grounds consist of 71 acres of wooded and open space. There are picnic pavilions, campsites, modern restrooms, horseshoe courts, volleyball courts, a basketball court, ball field area, an exercise trail and swings sets.  The park adjoins 19 acre Duman Lake which is owned by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. The lake has a handicap fishing pier and is regularly stocked with trout. During the weekends from May 15th through September 15th, a miniature train and hay rides are offered for the public's enjoyment.

When you enter the gates at Duman Lake County Park, be ready to spend an old-fashioned fun filled day! In addition to the fishing, train and hayrides, special events are organized throughout the summer. Annual mainstays at the park include: the Altoona Area Kennel Club's Dog Show, Laurel Highland Kennel Association, Boy Scouts Klondike Derby, Talus Rock Girl Scouts and much more.  Environmental education programs and walks are also available.

Although the park is "officially" open from May 15th to September 15th, patrons are welcome to come and use the park during daylight hours year round as a safe place to walk, jog, ski, or just to get away to a quiet natural setting.

Can I make a reservation over the phone?
Yes.  However, the request will be placed in a "hold status" to allow time to submit a formal application.  We will hold the request for five (5) days.   If payment is not received within five (5) days from the date of the request, the hold is automatically rescinded.
How will I know if my reservation request is accepted?
If the requested pavilion is available and the appropriate fee is received, a receipt will be mailed to the applicant confirming the reservation.  If the requested pavilion is not available, the applicant will be contacted by phone to discuss possible alternatives.
