Minutes away from an incredible adventure on Mt Kineo, which offers golfing, hiking, and fishing. An entire Island Mountain to explore.

Breathtaking hiking trails and amazing views!! If you have your own boat you can ride across and tie your boat up and hike for the day or you can go to Kineo dock and ride the ferry.

We adventured over as part of our visit to Misty Morning Cottages; about a mile walk across the ice. The views are spectacular and it is a great spot for enjoying nature. Our pups loved it too! We will definitely go back!

Rented motor boat and cruised the lake and fished. Got very rough on lake in afternoon, so had to come back early. Great day anyway!

Hello - Mt Kineo is only accessible by boat and believe it's for day use - I've never known anyone to camp on Kineo.
