  • This place is an absolute pleasure. Winter wonderland. This place is great any time of year on foot, snow shoes, skis. Lots of trails, lots to see and you feel like you have gotten your money's worth PROVIDING you brought YOUR equipment. Rentals there are a highway robbery.
  • My family had a great time hiking the trails. It was pretty cool to see carnivorous plants like pitcher plants. This place was 10 times better than the Wild Center in Tupper Lake.
