Things to Do

There’s more to Elk County than viewing elk! While many folks like to rest & relax while they Kick It In The Sticks, there’s lots to see while you’re staying in your vacation cabin in Benezette!

To help you plan your trip, we’re putting together some of our favorite adventures. Check back often for new ideas!


The babies born this year in Benezette are growing up. You’re likely to see elk calves & their momma’s coming out of hiding this month.
