Things To Do In And Around the Twain Harte Area


The Twain Harte area is a year-round recreation destination with an unlimited supply of fun. Fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, water-skiing, fine dining, gambling, golfing, concerts, shopping, professional theatre, white-water rafting, snow skiing and snowplay are just a few of the activities and attractions in the Central Sierra.

Twain Harte’s Eproson Park offers a fabulous playground for the little ones, barbecues, a baseball field and an outdoor stage where you can enjoy live free concerts in the Summer.  Our picturesque Executive Golf Course is nestled among the pines and open to the public.  The ever-popular Twain Harte Lake is staffed with lifeguards from Memorial Day to Labor Day and is available with select cabin rentals.  The quaint “downtown” Twain Harte area offers many fine restaurants, a mini golf course and public pool (Summer only), and shopping opportunities.

Nearby Cover’s Apple Ranch and Sierra Glen Apple Ranch offer year-round country experiences with apple and berry-picking, home baked goodies and hayrides.
