OK Susan.

Work Buddy Susan has been after me to post about Moraine State Park. Especially Since we’ve walked around it with the post on Windsurfing and McConnells Mill.

I Like Moraine. It’s a multi-use park off 19 and 422 on the other side of New Castle. Not too far, and lots of Activities.

Sure we mentioned the Windsurfing. There’s a beach with concessions, nice bay for kayaking, Picnic Areas, frisbee golf, 10 Boat launch areas for motorboats, sailboats and fishing.

For Hikers there’s 28 miles of hiking trails, 7 mile paved bike trail and 7 mile Mountain bike trail. The north Country Trail Passes through the Park, with a camping shelter on site for through hikers. Also, There’s a guided tour for Cars along Washington’s Trail through the area.

But Wait! There’s More. The Lake Arthur Regatta, Rental CAbins, Primitive Camping, Hunting Areas, Winter activities…You get the idea. Get out and take a look. This is a good weekend Because the Balloon Fest is also taking place in Newcastle, so you’re going to be in the area anyway, right?

And Joe, I Think I’m Ahead.
