Bear Track Landing puts the emphasis on fun with 11 waterslides, six pools and a four-story tree house waterfort - Fort Mackenzie - featuring 12 levels of waterbased adventure interconnected with suspension bridges, cargo nets and web crawls, as well as over 60 guest-activated water effects!

Old Mission Peninsula Wine Tour

Saturday, June 16, 1:00–5:00 p.m.
Depart for the Old Mission Peninsula, and enjoy an afternoon of winery tours and tastings.

Continuing up the peninsula you will stop for a photo op at the Old Mission Lighthouse, then begin the trip back down the peninsula, making a stop at family-run Bower’s Harbor, and lastly, Chateau Grand Traverse, with it’s 100% European vinifera vineyards. Space is limited. Price is $50 per person and includes transportation and admission to all wineries and attractions.
