Things To Do

Long Pine is known for fishing and tubing in the Pine Creek, which with a camp fire and good company may be enough. If you want other things to do, there's plenty in the area to check out. We encourage you to stay and extra day or two with us and plan some side trips to area communities and locations. Or stay with us along your way to and from other vacation locations, like the Black Hills.

  • Tubing:
    • Bring your tubes or rent them from us.
    • Creek Access:
      • Getting In:
        • The Pines is next to easeway access to the creek and a path into the creek, which is about 100-200 yards from where the cabins are depending on what route you take. The path down to the creek is on the west side of the Kyner Rd bridge.
        • Most people get into the creek as mentioned above next to The Pines....
      • Getting Out:
        • ...and get out on the north side of hwy 20. This is about 30-40 min of tubing.
        • For a longer trip start down at Hidden Paradise, for approx 4 hours of tubing
        • Works best if you have 2 vehicles to leave one at the get out location, by "Little Erma's" where there's a State Rec access road with parking. If you have one vehicle, plan on dropping it off and biking or walking back to the get in spot. Or if you are friendly enough, you might find a ride with other tubers!
  • Camp Witness: We like to encourage family time, but consider booking your kids for camp down creek and then coming for a personal get-a-way with us at The Pines!
