Little Pine State Park: This park is located directly across the street from our campground. It is a 2100 acre park with a 94 acre lake for fishing, swimming, canoeing, ice fishing and ice skating. It also has picnic areas and pavilions, volleyball courts, a basketball court, a bike course for kids to ride bicycles on a small dirt track, boat rentals (paddle boats, canoes, and rowboats), a shooting range for guns and bows and miles of marked hiking trails. The park has a variety of programs that it does over the seasons from lectures series to kids programs. We have updated lists of their programs in our office for your information.
Pine Creek Rail Trail: A magnificent trail that winds along the Big Pine Creek with over 60 scenic miles for biking, hiking or cross country skiing. You can access the trail just 3 miles from our campground and if you really feel up to it it's a fun ride on Little Pine Creek Road to get to the trail - but you better have your legs ready - some of the hills are pretty challenging!!
Little Pine Creek/Big Pine Creek: The Big and Little Pine Creeks are stocked trout streams located close to our resort. Little Pine is located directly across the street from our resort and feeds into the lake at the Little Pine State park then empties into the Big Pine Creek 4 miles downstream in the town of Waterville. When the water is high enough both creeks are fun for kayaking, canoeing, and tubing. Here is a link you can check to see the water levels on the Big Pine Creek in the town of Cedar Run - this is a good gauge to check to see if the water is high enough for the activity you want to do http://newweb.erh.noaa.gov/images/ahps2/hydrographs/cedp1_hg.png
