Tour Stops

  • Lake Alma State Park

    Lake Alma State Park is located in Vinton County, 34 miles southwest of Athens. The rugged, scenic terrain teems with wildlife, birds and wildflowers. Hike 3 miles of nature trails and relax at scenic picnic areas offering tables, grills and 3 shelterhouses, which may be reserved. A Nature Center provides entertainment all year.

    The peaceful 60-acre lake offers swimming and sunbathing on sand beaches. A refreshment stand is located near the beach. Enjoy laid-back boating, limited to canoeing, sailing or boats with electric motors only. Boat rental is available and a launch ramp to provide easy access.

    Fishing can be enjoyed from the shoreline or on the lake. Sledding, ice skating, cross country skiing and ice fishing remember to bring your own gear.

    The campground offers 71 campsites with electric hookups and 10 non-electric sites. Pets are allowed on designated sites. Camping facilities are basic, including picnic tables and fire rings at each site. Latrines and drinking water are available in the campground. Enjoy hassle-free camping in a Camper Cabin.

    Camping rates (weekends) range from $19/night to $23/night for non-electric/electric sites. The Camper Cabin is $30/night. Call 1-866-644-6727 for reservations.

  • Cedar Point Amusement Park/Resort

    The whole family will love Cedar Point. With over 150 rides and attractions, award-winning entertainment, four children's areas, and beach, there’s something for everyone. We'll reopen May 9, 2015.

    The park features more than 70 rides, including 17 coasters, with four more than 200 feet tall.  Millennium Force holds the title of number one steel coaster on the planet.

    Debuting in 2015: A dynamic new coaster-riding experience, Rougarou feeds on screams and lurks in and around the swampy lagoon at the center of the park, shared with other coasters like Iron Dragon and Top Thrill Dragster.  Rougarou’s floorless trains will take riders on an epic journey at speeds reaching 60 mph as their feet dangle just inches above the track and the murky waters below.

    Cedar Point also offers three children’s areas, including Planet Snoopy, and musical entertainment.  Overnight guests enjoy accommodations, from the totally renovated, beachfront Hotel Breakers to waterfront cottages and cabins.   

    All Resorts offer guests huge savings on regular one-day Cedar Point admission tickets.  Resorts guests also enjoy Early Entry, the opportunity (with paid admission) to enjoy select rides an hour before the park opens to the general public (weather and maintenance conditions permitting).
