With convenient warming shelters scattered along the trails, you can take a break and cozy up by the fire before continuing your outdoor journey. Whether you’re seeking a heart-pumping workout or a leisurely stroll through the snow-covered wilderness, the Camp Morton trails provide the perfect setting for outdoor exploration and adventure.

Embrace the chill of the season with a thrilling ice skating adventure. Explore frozen ponds, lakes, and outdoor rinks transformed into sparkling ice arenas. Glide across the smooth surface, feeling the crisp air against your face as you twirl and glide to your heart’s content. Whether you’re a seasoned skater or a beginner, there’s nothing quite like the exhilaration of skating in the open air. During times when outdoor rinks may not be accessible or ideal, we encourage everyone to research their local community rinks for public skating options. These indoor facilities provide a great alternative for enjoying ice skating in a comfortable and controlled environment, ensuring fun for individuals and families alike, regardless of the weather outside.


Cozy Cabin Getaways

After a day of outdoor adventures, retreat to a cozy cabin nestled in the heart of nature. Warm up by the crackling fireplace, sip on hot cocoa, and cozy up with a good book or board game. With the ground frozen outside, you’ll enjoy the tranquility and peace of a winter retreat without the worry of snowstorms or icy roads.
