I loved PEEC ever since I went to summer camp there as a kiddo. I later became a counselor. Now as an adult out of town I rarely frequent... A shame because it really is a local gem! They have great activities for all ages...More

There are many trails of various degrees of difficulty but nothing difficult. We routinely do the Tumbling Waters trail and also the Fossil trail. It's a great stop if you are passing through the DWGNRA.

PEEC is a great place to have a wedding but they accept only a limited number of bookings so it is best to contact them soon.
