Summer has arrived in Ohiopyle!
Temperatures soared well over 80 degrees this past weekend. Ohiopyle looked and felt more like July than May. The beautiful weather really got us thinking about Memorial Day weekend, the big summer kick-off holiday. Ohiopyle Guest Houses and Yough Lake Campground are close to full occupancy. Good news, though! There is still availability for rafting and zip-lining. But don’t wait too long! Trips fill up quickly for the holiday weekend. You don’t want to be left out of enjoying all the fun.
