Treasure Lake is a small town that takes pride in its community and beautiful natural scenery. It is a private gated community covering more than 12 square miles of scenic land and water. The Pennsylvania State Capital Harrisburg is less than 120 miles away, while the city of DuBois is less than 8 miles north. Located within the county of Clearfield, the area is a safe haven to raise a family or enjoy retirement.
Treasure Lake is uniquely connected to the famous lumber mogul who began the city of Dubois, John DuBois. John E. DeBois Junior, nephew of the lumber tycoon, established the area of Treasure Lake and originally named the lake after his wife Rene. However, when the Great Northern Development Company was sold the property, where homes in Treasure Lake are located today, the area and lake became known for its current name. Today, the area is also known for its beautiful lodging and campsites, taverns, restaurants, and leisure venues.
