Wild Mountain Recreation Area
At Wild Mountain, visitors can enjoy a variety of fun activities regardless of the season. During the winter, snow lovers can partake in skiing, snowboarding, and tubing, which features 100 acres of hills encompassing 26 runs, bunny slopes for newcomers, and four terrain parks for the seasoned veterans. Once the snow melts, the winter wonderland transforms into an amusement park replete with go-karts, a 1,700-foot alpine slide, and a waterpark with several large waterslides along with a lazy river and other aquatic attractions. Families can also enjoy a game of volleyball and horseshoes, or just relax at one of the picnic tables or tents scattered throughout the park.
