Judith Hughes

Forty years ago, Judith Hughes, along with several Conneaut Lake business people met to form the Conneaut Lake Area Business Association. Since than Judith has been actively involved in promoting local businesses.

On Tuesday, June 22, 2021, Judith Hughes passed away after an 8-month battle with lung cancer.

Over the years Judith served as president of CLABA several times.  At the time of Judith’s passing, she was the current president.

Judith will always be remembered as the founder and organizer of Fall Pumpkin Fest which will celebrate its 30th anniversary in October this year.  Several years ago, she founded the Scholarship Raffle which has presented over $15,000 in scholarships to CASH seniors.  The raffle is held during Fall Pumpkin Fest.  It will now be known as the Judith Hughes Memorial Scholarship Raffle.

Judith will be greatly missed by all those involved with the Conneaut Lake Area Business Association and the community.

Welcome to Our Site!

We are proud sponsors of the Fall Pumpkin Fest, Parade, and the Festival of the Arts.

We’d like to welcome you and your family to our unique corner of the world, where family fun and good times have been a tradition for over a hundred years!

A friendly, affordable community, Conneaut Lake offers activities for all members of the family, and accommodations to suit all tastes and budgets. Close enough for a day’s outing or a weekend getaway, there’s also plenty of variety for a mini-vacation or longer stay.

Whether you’re looking for peaceful waterfront serenity, unique shopping experiences, a variety of savory dining opportunities, or the thrill and nostalgia of a ride on our classic wooden roller coaster, the “Blue Streak”, at Conneaut Lake Park, we have something for everyone. And we’ve reserved a spot for YOU!

Nestled on Pennsylvania’s scenic RT. 6, between Pittsburgh and Erie, and only minutes from Ohio, the Conneaut Lake Resort Area surrounds beautiful Conneaut Lake, Pennsylvania’s largest natural lake. Fishing, swimming, water skiing (we have no horse power limit), sunbathing or simply relaxing by the water are all yours to enjoy.


Established as a mecca for hunters and fishermen in the 1880’s, Conneaut Lake donned its resort area atmosphere with the establishment of Conneaut Lake Exposition Park in 1892. We have over 100 years of making guests smile and have proven that “Conneaut Lake memories last a lifetime”.

You owe it to yourself to come on up, over or down to experience our charm, friendliness and fun. Make some more long-lasting Conneaut Lake memories!!
