Stay Local, Play Local at Carter Mountain

Carter Mountain is your summer “staycation” destination!

Pick Your Own Fruit

Come pick your own fruit and enjoy a view that goes on for miles. Our tree-ripened peaches are still in season, and apple picking has just begun! Come pick your own Ginger Gold apples—sweet yet tart, crisp and juicy. Ginger Gold apples make a great fresh snack and also shine in salads, baking, and sauces.

Learn more about our apple varieties and apple availability at Carter Mountain.
