Enjoy the serene creek and beauty of the outdoors while being just a short drive to city attractions! The road to the property is the old railroad line and continues as a walking path - start your mornings with a relaxing stroll through nature! The stream is stocked by the Fish & Boat Commission every year, which encourages catch-and-release. Spend a day on the water practicing your fishing skills to see if you can snag a trout!

You'll find the town of Dauphin to be quaint; Stony Creek Inn Restaurant is a real gem, and Dauphin Pizza is sure to please the crowd. The Dauphin community pool is open during the summer months, and 3B Ice Cream is a seasonal hit! Head into Harrisburg 15 minutes away for all kinds of activities, restaurants, and shopping. Harrisburg has a multitude of eateries, breweries, wineries, and shops, along with attractions like City Island, Riverfront Park, and the Capital Area Greenbelt. Check out the Whitaker Center, National Civil War Museum, or numerous rotating festivals held each year! You can also head to Lancaster County and the Hollywood Casino for a night of hitting the tables. Wildwood Park is a favorite for biking, walking, and bird watching.
