Harmony lake is a small and quiet lake ? Man made near Harrisburg . It’s surrounded by lush green forest and has a sort of beach . On a hot humid July day there was not much activity in the lake though a few enthusiasts were out in the water. The lake has a private club with members-only area and the rest of it is the Boulder View Tavern . The tavern has an indoor restaurant open after 4 pm and a much livelier outdoor bar and cafe. With delicious sea food and Mexican fare , it was a nice afternoon spent there!

We were looking to get away in early May, before summer baseball season started. We found a newly renovated unit at 33 Midlake (102) just as the owners were moving in. We struck up a conversation with Kim and arranged to stay there for a few days. Despite the rain, we were still able to hike, bike and fish for 4 awesome days of tranquility! Since this unit overlooks the private pool and is right next to the dock, we've booked two separate vacations for the summer...Big Boulder is a super-clean lake!

We loved the lake! The water trampoline isn't very far out and easy to swim to. Rented kayaks (both open and closed) can be used for up to 3 hours.The lake club was a little far as a walking distance, but lots of things to do. Volleyball, tennis, peddle boats, tennis, two pools, one deep, one shallow, and of course the lake to swim in. Rooms were very nice, near a small beach. They were clean, but one shower's drain was clogged. Overall, we had fun & enjoyed it.

We stayed in the Midlake Village (building E) for a short Summer getaway with three kids aged 8-11. Overall, we were happy with the experience. The Good: The Lake Mountain Club was a great spot for the kids. Between the trampoline float in the lake, pools, various boats, and the usual resort games (volleyball, ping-pong, etc.), the kids had plenty to do on nice days. The staff at the lake were all extremely helpful, with special mention to Butch who was handling the boats on the days we were there. The lake itself is a great asset, with decent fishing (we caught largemouth bass, perch, and a bunch of other panfish). It's very clean and supports a lot of wildlife (we saw a Bald Eagle perched on a tree near the dam). The rest of the grounds are nice, with lots of small trails around the lake. Could be Better: Our particular unit (number 195 in Midlake) was showing its age. The furniture, decor, and especially the kitchen were all vintage. In fact, I'm reasonably sure the appliances were all from the original build out circa 1985. While this was definitely designed to be an outdoor vacation, the lack of any Wi-Fi and a 19" Tube TV complete with integral VCR gives a sense of the in-room amenities, at least in our unit. Also, a word on Boulder View Tavern adjacent to the lake facilities. It's a great location with a really nice building and a tempting menu. Unfortunately, the food was only fair, with most of the food we tried clearly reheated or packaged restaurant-supply (french fries, salsa, mozzerella sticks, etc.). It wasn't disastrously bad, but it certainly didn't live up to the prices or the atmosphere. Considering the prices (around $200/night for 5 people) and the location (easily accessible from NJ and PA), the Villages at Big Boulder Lake are a good option for a low-cost vacation. Footnote: I stayed in the Blue Heron section with my parents as a teenager when the facility first opened in the early 1980s. Those units are a little bit more expensive to rent, but they have a better location (closer to activities) and the buildings themselves are a bit higher end.

After spending the day at Knoebels amusement park, we came back and decided we didn't feel like cooking. There are not alot of choices for take-out in Lake Harmony, but we decided to order from Boulder View Tavern, which was right down the street from where we are staying. We read the reviews online first and decided to try it out. I ordered the Asian Veggie Spring Rolls and the Penne Chicken Cesar Salad. Both were delicious. The spring rolls were crispy on the outside and the dipping sauce was thick and spicy. The salad was generous and fresh, wih alot of tender chicken and the cesar dressing was just right - not too mayonais-y. My husband ordered the house ribs and the meat did truly fall off the bone. He was very satisfied - and he's a rib man! The kids helped us finish off everything - the portion sizes were nice too.
