The Great Outdoors

There are so many fun outdoor activities to explore when you book an RV in St. Lawrence County. The Beaver Pond Nature Trail runs through the area, with interpretive signs that provide information about the different natural habitats and wildlife in the area. There's also a more extensive network of hiking trails, with options for different ability levels. If you're looking for a longer, more challenging hike, there are several trails just outside of the park, including the Stone Valley Trail and Allen Falls Trailhead. These trails will take you through beautiful Adirondack scenery with mountain views and waterfalls.

Higley Flow State Park has a stunning beach along the shores of Warm Creek Flow, where you can relax during a warm day. There is also a boat launch, and you can use both powerboats as well as canoes and kayaks in the river. It's easy to boat over to the South Colton Reservoir, where there's plenty of fishing to hook. There's also a boat launch on the reservoir itself. Some of the resident fish species in the river and reservoir include smallmouth bass, yellow perch, northern pike, walleye, and white sucker. There are several other incredible places to go fishing in the area, including Carry Falls Reservoir, Rainbow Falls Reservoir, and Massawepie Lake.

The winter season opens up a lot of outdoor recreation opportunities at Higley Flow State Park too. The hiking trails double as trails for cross-country skiing during the snowy months. There are also trails for snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Anglers can also enjoy ice fishing, and there is a ski lodge in the center of the park where you can warm up after your adventures.

What are RV rentals?

Renting an RV lets you enjoy the flexibility of RV travel without all the costs and maintenance of ownership.

Are RV rentals pet-friendly?

Many RV owners allow pets in their rentals. Be sure to check the listing to see if it’s an option for the rig you have your eye on. You’ll be able to see if there is an extra deposit or fee for pets before you request a booking.

RV rental vs buying?
