Ice Skating on a Frozen Lake

A quintessential wintertime activity, skating is best enjoyed on a frozen lake within the great outdoors. Below are two of our favorite natural skating locales:

Hills Creek State Park, Pennsylvania

Why We Love It:

  • Other winter sports opportunities
  • 10 modern cabins available in winter

This 407-acre park features a large lake perfect for skating in cold months. Other wintertime sports opportunities include ice fishing, sledding, snowshoeing and race skiing. you’ll spy some birds native to the world, including bald eagles and osprey. Ten modern cabins are open year-round, and 85 campsites and two yurts are open spring through fall.

Winchester Lake State Park, Idaho

 Why We Love It:

  • The picturesque setting at the foot of the mountains
  • Four heated and furnished yurts available for rent

Whirl over Winchester Lake, a football field-sized lake, in your skates this winter. This beautiful lake is tucked away before the dramatic Craig Mountains. Ice fishing is another favorite winter pastime, as is skiing and snowshoeing. Stay warm in one among four yurts with heating and basic furnishings that are available for rent all year long.
