We want to thank you for selecting our community as your new home. Deer Lake is a caring community that is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. While Deer Lake is a small community, it offers access to the amenities of a large urban environment. It is located within the Blue Mountain School District and also offers easy highway access to major cities such as Reading, Harrisburg, Allentown, and Philadelphia while maintaining a small-town community feel. We are also the Southern gateway to the Poconos.
Deer Lake was initially formed in 1926 and had a rich history of being a summer recreational area for the affluent of the area. It also attracted many vaudeville acts to the summer theatre, which once stood at one of the original entrances to the Borough.
Deer Lake was recognized as one of the 10 Best Small Towns to live in the Commonwealth of PA. Using Area Vibes and U.S. Census data, with populations between 100 & 1,000 (of which there were 346), Deer Lake was ranked as #7.
