Outdoor Activities in Pennsylvania
Explore the Great Outdoors in Mercer County
With its gently rolling hills, scenic parks and placid lakes, Mercer County’s natural beauty is renowned. Plunge into an outdoor adventure of hiking, biking, boating and more. The “wildlife” you encounter might be your own. The 3,500-acre Shenango River Lake sits adjacent to Tara – A Country Inn. The reservoir is the outdoor playground for the region. Boating, canoeing and kayaking, bird-watching the majestic bald eagles and osprey, and fishing are but a few of the activities to enjoy. Tara’s property is right next to a public boat launch, and less than a ½ mile from Northstar Marina. Wave Runner, Kayak and Pontoon rentals are available at Northstar Marina. We invite you to bring your boat and spend your days on the water, your evenings in our restaurants and your nights in our guestrooms!
