Lake Pleasant sign
Lake Pleasant is a natural glaciered lake located in Venango Township. It is approximately 60 acres in size.

Although not the only species present, trout appear to be the most sought after prize; as this lake is stocked several times a year by the PA Fish and Boat Commission. It is designated as an Stocked Trout Waters Open to Year-Round Fishing.

Watercraft operation is limited to manual propulsion only -- the use of any type of motor (gas and/or electric) is prohibited. The Commission maintains a parking lot and land lease along the southeastern shore area of the lake (adjacent to SR 1001). PA Fish and Boat Commission property regulations apply.
