Upper Gravel Pit

Located in Erie County, ​the Fairview Gravel Pits are comprised of Upper and Lower pits. Both are owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and managed by the Fish and Boat Commission for public fishing and boating.


The Commission stocks the 10-acre Upper Gravel Pit with trout.


Boating is limited to boats powered by electric motors and un-powered boats. One launch ramp is available along with associated parking facilities.

Un-powered boats may be moored at the lake in accordance with Commission property regulations. To be used at the lake, boats must be registered or have a valid launch permit (permits are issued by the Commission or PA Dept. of Conservation and Natural Resources).
