This is a four season recreational area that has strong community ties made up of families that have lived here for generations, as well as those who came here to vacation and decided to make it their home. The fun starts in spring when the fishing season officially opens on April 1st. Small and large mouth bass, trout, perch and landlocked salmon are some of the species in South Paris' lakes, rivers and streams. Summer brings all kinds of water activities, such as swimming, water skiing, canoeing, kayaking, camping, motor boats and more. There are two golf courses located in the Oxford Hills, and the Oxford Plains Speedway is located on Route 26 in Oxford County. Fall, of course, brings spectacular color to the mountains, and the weather is perfect for hiking and mountain climbing.
