4th Of July
Apple Canyon Lake offers some of the best 4th of July fireworks you will see, normally held the first Saturday of July! The lake will fill with hundreds of boats during the late afternoon in order to secure their spot for the spectacle. A professional light show will take place from the dam beginning promptly at dark. What appears to be a lighted boat parade then launches at their conclusion, with all boaters weaving slowly back to their docks. It is truly something to see!!!
For the winter enthusiast, you can enjoy snowshoeing on the trails or ice fishing on the lake. Chestnut Mountain Ski Resort is located within a half hour drive along beautiful countryside winding roads. Enjoy skiing and snowboarding and in the summer, dare to ride the alpine slide! The Galena Territory also offers various winter activities. Or maybe you are looking for a get-away location for your New Year’s Eve have the winter wonderland setting for you!
