When we head up to Raystown Lake we like to do some hiking. Some of the marked trails are fairly easy hikes, while other hiking trails are for the more experienced, and physically-fit hiker. When hiking, you always want to prepare for your hike properly and take along the necessary items. In addition, it's always a good idea to let someone know where you'll be hiking and when you plan on coming back. Always practice safety when playing out in nature!

Our grandchildren enjoy coming along with us from time to time and they enjoy playing on the beach and in the water. The beaches are quite nice...sandy and nicely laid out. On the beaches that we visit, there are no lifeguards, so please watch your children accordingly. Some beaches have restrooms and concession stands, while other's do not. We prefer to bring along our own picnic-style lunch, along with beverages in a cooler for all of us to enjoy. Please keep the beaches clean and always clean-up before you leave.
