  • The main feature is a working water-powered sawmill, but that's only the beginning. We enjoyed the nature program and nature hike and my kids liked the zipline. Research before you go to find out...

  • I brought my two sons and we had a great time checking out this park. They were amazed by the sawmill demonstration, we loved looking at all the frogs and wildlife, and enjoyed the hike up stream. There was a great little exhibit with the furs and tracks of all the local animals. My boys loved it. Be aware that the trails are not very long but the bugs were horrible on the hike. Do the hike but bring bug spray. All the staff were great and very friendly. We will back another time. Thanks for the great experience!
  • This was a great family experience. We had children 7,9 and 13. Everyone had a great time doing the bridge and zip line. The highlight of the trip was the guides. Very knowledgeable and helpful to engage the kids. The saw mill was the absolute best. It is amazing the level of engineering that they possessed in that time period. A must see for all ages.
