  • TONS to do here! The nature trail, the observation tower, the falls, splash pad are all so much fun! There’s paddle boat rentals, craft den, horseback riding and more! The cabins look fun and I might be excited for camping there on the new campsites (WITH water hookups and electric) but they are quite close and no shade since no trees currently. I think it’ll be great for camping in 10 years though.
  • Pretty, fun, but don't come here in the summer to camp in a tepee. Sweltering doesn't even begin to describe it. That said, definitely come visit. It's beautiful, and if I had realized the tepee situation ahead of time, I would have had a much more enjoyable stay
