About Treasure Lake

Treasure Lake is part of the Greater DuBois Area. DuBois is a small city with several shopping centers, restaurants, bars and recreational areas. The city is located approximately 2 1/2 hours northeast of Pittsburgh and 2 1/2 hours southeast of Erie.

The area has a low crime rate, great public and private schooling options, an award-winning hospital with state of the art medical equipment and an abundance of natural resources.

History of Treasure Lake

In June of 1842, John DuBois rode into the area in a horse-drawn buggy. He was looking over the forest to determine the potential for establishing a lumber business. Mr. DuBois acquired 35,000 acres of forest land in Clearfield County and launched a successful enterprise. It was then that DuBois became established as a town.

In later years, his nephew, John E. DuBois, Jr. acquired the property which was so special to him and to his family. He conceived an idea of establishing this land as a recreational area which could be enjoyed by others. He determined that a lake would be constructed to add enjoyment to the area. The completed lake was named “Lake Rene” in honor of his wife.

In 1968, the property was sold to Great Northern Development Company. Lake Rene was renamed “Treasure Lake”. In 1969 a Declaration of Restrictions was developed, and the sale of lots began. Over the years there have been several other developers who have aided in the creation of this beautiful community.

In February 1996, the Treasure Lake Property Owners Association assumed the ownership of the amenities within Treasure Lake.
