Our family had several homes at the lake over the years from 1931 thru the 1980's. The last one's at pole 285 and 286. My father made his own water ski's and was the first one to ski on the lake behind my grandfathers 30's Barrel Back Chris Craft. I still have both pairs of his home made 8 foot long water ski's that he built in our lumber mill in Plains, Grosek and Sons Consturction. I grew up spending summers at the lake and learned to ski in 1959 at 8 yrs old on those huge ski's. What great times we had!

I grew up coming to Harvey's lake for a week once a year when I was young. My brother and I went to Hanson's park and even to the dances. We saw Gary US Bond and Chubby Checkers there. It was so great. Really miss it and wish the park was back. I have relatives who live close to the lake and at least once a year my family and I will take a ride around it.

Those were them good old days. Loved spending summers at Sandy Beach, and Hansons. Winters we spent shoveling off the ice to ice skate. What great memories.

Thank you for this great site, good work. I was fortunate enough to spend every summer of my youth at the lake. I have so many fond memories of Hanson's, Sandy beach...fishing, swimming..the benches at the Sandy Beach drive-in. Ben Rood's cabins. My first dance at the Sandy Beach Pavilion to Eddy Day and the Night Timers. I have been gone for 30 years now, and I know the lake is not what it was in years past. Thanks for capturing this wonderful memories for us.

My family enjoyed this place so much during the 1980's. Grotto Pizza was our favorite place to eat. I can't believe it is still open today.

I came across your website and only then realized the story about Alice Crispell's death... she was my grandfather's sister. This sparked lots of curiosity and so I just took a trip to Harvey's Lake last weekend with my parents to see this place for myself. Thanks for the great website and information.

Thank you for this wonderful website! My parents used to rent a cottage from my uncle, Spot O'Donnell, at pole 10 every summer. In 1966, Spot bought the old Devlin home and invited me to stay there for the summer to help restore the place. That summer and the next my cousins and I learned how to to do just about anything that can be done on a house, dock, or boat. We had a ball doing it too! My cousins introduced me to the joys of eating pizza at Joes, the dances at Hansons, rowing a boat for hours on end, and water skiing. Some of the best times in my life were spent at Harvey's Lake. Thank you so much for the flood of good memories this site has awakened.

Born there in 1954 and lived there year-round at Pole 249 for 15 years. Went back for a couple hours four summers ago, said hello to an old friend from across the lake. I knew that family would still be there. They always will be, too. Sunday sailboat races, fireworks at Hanson's Sunday night, the Penny Arcade, waterskiing, riding minibikes, many many wonderful memories. Miss it.

I am a nephew of George P. Hughes, the marine diver who found bodies at the bottom of the lake in 1939. The State Police came to our house at the request of the Governor to get his help. I am delighted to see the team efforts of the Hughes divers on your site. Thank you.

As a child I spent every summer at the girlscout lodge, then became a leader and then a life guard. As I grew older and got my car, it was dances at the park and pizza at the grotto. If anyone has pictures of the girl scout camp I would love to get copies I have so many memories and always dreamed of owning the lodge.
