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

In later years, John Du Bois' nephew, John E. Du Bois, Jr. (1898-1984) acquired the property which was so special to him and his family. He conceived the idea of establishing this land as a recreational area which could be enjoyed by others. He determined that a lake could be constructed which would add to the enjoyment of the facilities. Once completed, he named this lake "Rene" for his wife.  

In 1968, the property was sold to Great Northern Development Company. Lake Rene became Treasure Lake, and in 1969 the Declaration of Restrictions was developed. Then, 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 ownership of all the Amenities at Treasure Lake.



The community of Treasure Lake is a private development with 24 hour security.  Treasure Lake consists of over 9000 acres, 3 private lakes, over 6000 lots, and over 2000 homes, with approximately 100 miles of roadways.  It is accessible through two points of entry and exit, with full time security/safety staff located at the main entrance to Treasure Lake.

"We have lived here since the summer of 2004 and have had the same home since 2002, which we used part time and rented the rest of the time. We love Treasure Lake. We were attracted to Treasure Lake because it has public water and sewer and, now, in much of the Lake area, natural gas. The homes are varied in construction and, for the most part, well cared for. The homes are situated in an area of natural beauty, consisting of beautiful lakes and forests and two very beautiful golf courses. There are ample opportunities for swimming, boating, hiking, running, biking, cross country skiing, and other sports. The homes and assessment, in comparison to like communities throughout the United States and Canada, are reasonable. Treasure Lake offers all of the above in a serene and peaceful surrounding, which is just about everything one could ask for in a lifestyle! It is not only a place where we live and work, but a place where we can “vacation in” and, ultimately, where we will retire!"
Craig and Mary Kay Marshall, Residents Since 2004

“We were transferred from New Hampshire. After looking in the local area, we decided on Treasure Lake because it reminded us of the New England landscape and it had “extras” such as the golf course and the beaches that were very appealing. Treasure Lake is more than a place, it is a feeling. The best way to describe living here is to give an example – at the end of the day, when you are going home, and you come to the view of the Lake at the crest of the hill – that scene makes you say or think “ahh – I’m home.”  Seeing the Lake reminds us of the natural beauty of our community, our home on the golf course and our great friends that reside here. It is a special place.”
Sally, Jules and Ed Moran, Resident Since 2001

"Ron and I moved here approximately 1 ½ years ago from New Mexico, which was quite a change in scenery and culture.  We absolutely love our home in Treasure Lake.  I was fortunate to meet this beautiful lady that befriended me quite soon and introduced me to the people and the “Lake.”  There is so much to do in Treasure Lake and this vicinity, like the beautiful golf courses, the bridge playing, the quilting, the yoga classes, and more and more and more.  The lakes are beautiful with their white beaches – they are a place where one can relax and let their grandchildren play.  My new friend once told me “The treasure in Treasure Lake is the people, not the place.”  In a very short time I found this to be so true.  We were total strangers and the people in Treasure Lake have made us feel a “part of the community - a part of them.”  I had never lived away from my home town, but here in Treasure Lake, I already have more friends and am as happy as I’ve ever been!  Come for the beautiful scenery and make this your home with the beautiful people of Treasure Lake."
Ron and Linda Awtrey, Residents Since 2008

"Tom took a position with Penn Traffic in 1983.  We were living in Des Moines, Iowa, after leaving Seven Springs, PA where I was Sales Manager.  Tom was Merchandising & Marketing VP for Super Valu.  We knew we were not going to stay in Iowa, and Treasure Lake was the deal-maker.  We visited in December and moved in February.  My family thinks we moved from one resort to another!  To live in “The Lake” is one advantage, but to live in a community where we have made some very special friends makes all the difference.  We have taken advantage of every asset of “The Lake” and have enjoyed life in the Greater DuBois area – they are not mutually exclusive!   This is a great area to raise kids, practice your profession (teaching), work in local commerce, and hopefully make it possible to enjoy retirement with good health and good friends."
Carol and Tom Korthaus, Residents Since 1983

"We moved to Treasure Lake in 1991.  Born and raised in the DuBois area, we were looking for a place that would give us the feel of living in the woods, with water and sewage provided.  I love it here and would not want to live anywhere else in Pennsylvania.  The lakes offer stunning views; the sunsets on Bimini Lake are awesome.  There is a sense of serenity when you enter the gates.  Just a real relaxed feeling that has not gone away after all these years.  I still stop to watch the wildlife; from the buck with a majestic set of antlers to the bear walking up the green of the Gold Course to the bald eagle flying effortlessly over Bimini Lake.  The brilliant fall foliage lines all the roads in Treasure Lake in the fall.   When winter rolls around, the fresh fallen snow glistens off the branches making it a winter wonderland, and the lush green foliage in the summer makes Treasure Lake a picture perfect community.  The eclectic styles of homes make it a departure from the ordinary “cookie cutter communities”.  People in Treasure Lake come from all walks of life and all parts of the world, making the new found friendships so interesting."
Carol and Tom Foltz and Family, Residents Since 1991
