The paradox of life for campers—how can you be conveniently close to home but feel as though you’re living that woodsy outdoor life? Paradox Lake creates that platform for you. On the waterfront, enjoy boating, canoeing or jet skiing. If you didn’t BYOB (bring your own boat), renting is available. Paradox is famous for spectacular hiking through the south end of shore: Crane, Crab, Putnam, Horseshoe Ponds and Oxshoe trails to name a few. Pharaoh Mountain offers an epic view from the summit. Celebrating a wedding? A reunion? A picnic area with a pavillion rental is up for grabs for whatever shindig you have to get down and boogie for.
