Petersburg Wave Camp


A truly unique recreational feature of Grant County is the Petersburg Wave

The Petersburg Wave, a rising column of air generated by strong west winds plunging over the Allegheny Front and deflected upward by ridges to the east. Every year in March, when the Wave is the strongest, glider-plane pilots from around the country, and the world, come to ride the Petersburg Wave. Many East Coast altitude records have been set during the Petersburg Wave Camp.
