You will be fishing on strictly private water. According to the Fish and Boat Commission of PA, 90% of Spruce Creek is private water (about 6.3 miles out of 7 miles total). The only other fishermen you will see are those in your group. There is enough water for a group of six to have individual solitude if they wish. Limited fishing pressure means big, healthy trout eager to take your fly!
Spruce Creek is an exceptional fishery and it is well-maintained. The insect life is abundant, the pools deep and numerous. Cold underground springs keep the waters cool and flowing year-round.
Most groups hook and land several fish in the 16"-20" range, a handful of fish over 20", and a few special fish in the 24"-30" range. Some of these huge trout will take a dry fly - a truly remarkable experience!
Yes. Spruce Creek is a "Class A Wild Trout Water" according to the Fish and Boat Commission of PA. In the words of Robert F. Carline who published a study on the trout populations in Spruce Creek, "Wild brown trout dominate the fish community."
Our pricing at Trout Haven is very competitive and we offer three vacation packages starting at just $475. Best of all, Spruce Creek is an easy drive from most major metropolitan areas in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions - no airfare and no hassles with luggage!

Yes. Try our 24-hour Explorer Package and stay for one night. It's very reasonably priced and you'll be glad you did. The Explorer Package is the minimum price; if you wish to come for daytime hours only, the cost is the same.
There are 4 bedrooms in Hemlock Lodge, and each bedroom has two queen beds and a private bathroom.
The standard rate guarantees you a private bed, but does not guarantee you a private bedroom. Many anglers choose to come with a buddy so that they can share one bedroom and save some money.
The single occupancy rate guarantees you a private bedroom and bathroom. Your room will have two queen beds, and both are yours. You will be charged $75 per night in addition to the standard rate.
You are not required to purchase single occupancy, even if you come alone. We host anywhere from 4 to a maximum of 6 people on one trip. You will end up with a private room if only 4 people come on our trip; but if 6 people come, then we can only guarantee single occupancy to those who have paid the single occupancy rate.
