Disc Golf

Written by

DiscGolfEnjoy nature and have fun at Lewiston's 18-hole Disc Golf course. The course is located at Buttles Park, just north of town on Buttles Road. It features 18 challenging and fun holes in a wooded area. Concrete t-pads and Mach-V baskets make this a PDGA approved course.

Founded in the 1970's the sport of disc golf is played like golf, but with a flying disc or Frisbee. Players attempts to complete each hole in as few throws as possible. The final "putt" land the disc in a metal basket. Trees and other terrian features create challenges as players work their way through the course. The sport is easy to learn, and can be played by people of all ages and abilities. It's a great way to get outdoors and have some fun while staying fit.

Lewiston's disc golf course is free to play. Just bring your own disc.

Waterskiing

Written by

Waterskiing01It feels like you are defying the law of gravity as the powerboat pulls you forward and you a gently rise out of the water. Cruising across a lake at 20 miles per hour while standing up is definitely a thrill. And Lewiston is home to two lakes that provide the open water necessary for waterskiing. East Twin and West Twin Lakes are both all-sports lakes, with enough room to accommodate all types of watercraft. On any given weekend in the summer, you will find fisherman, pontoon boats, personal watercraft, and even a few speedboats with water-skiers in tow.

Sailing

Written by

SailingMichigan has many inland lakes, but not all are large enough to accommodate small sailboats. Lewiston, however, has two such lakes. Both East Twin Lake and West Twin Lake are over a mile across and have public access locations. Feel the wind catch the sails and the boat lean gracefully in response, as it glides quietly across the water. Enjoy this most ancient and natural way of getting out on the water.

Paddleboarding

Written by

Paddleboarding01Standup Paddleboarding (or SUP) originated in Hawaii as on off-shoot of surfing, and is one of the fastest-growing watersports in the world. Paddleboards range from 8 to 12 feet in length, and are wide enough to remain stable when the rider stands up. A long paddle allows the rider to move across the water, while keeping this unique vantage point.

Nearly any lake can be used for paddleboarding since the boards have almost no draft. Fisherman also enjoy the boards for their ability to navigate most any water, and because the standing position allows them to see further down into the water.

Sno-Drift Rally

Written by

Snodrift02They call it "real cars, real roads, real fast!" Rally cars are small powerful cars with roll cages, extra lights and equipment for a drive and co-driver (navigator) that use our back roads on a weekend in late January. The race sections are closed to other traffic, and the cars are in a timed race at each of those stages. The race in this area is the first of each year's schedule, for rally teams that travel the nation in similar events. It is the only winter race, and the ice and snowdrifts are a real challenge. The cars are on display in downtown Lewiston, they pit-stop at Atlanta and have an awards dinner at Hillman, making it a county-wide event. Check Sno-drift.org or Rally America for more details.
