Looking for a HEALTHY, FREE, OUTDOOR FAMILY Activity??!! Have you tried our DISC GOLF Course??
Located near East Harbor's Lockwood Shelter House, you will find a Disc Golf course just waiting for you to enjoy! Here's how it works: A typical disc golf course has 18 holes, thus 18 disc golf targets are used. The person throwing the disc starts at a designated area (tee-pad) on each hole. The object of the game is to throw the disc in the basket in the least number of throws. As in real golf, whoever ends up with the lowest score wins the round. This is a fun activity which combines recreation with nature!
Fishing and Hunting
Thousands of visitors come to East Harbor's 1,500-foot sand beach.
