As we sat out at one of the picnic tables a doe and her fawn came near us and started eating grass. I slowly inched closer and stood within 5 -6 feet of the doe. What a great experience. There is a campground close by and it looks like a popular place. Be sure to reserve ahead as it is usually full.
  • Best peach pie ever!!! Little to no added sugar so it just juicy peaches in a fabulous crust. Wish I had bought several.
