  • The canoeing and kayaking was amazing you pay 20 bucks for 4 hours. You dont have to do the total four hours tho, most people do 1 to 2 hours. You see so much wild life like crabs, swans, and more. I would recomend this to anyone. The only thing i would change is that there is only one bathroom on the river trail. The trails are nice too plus there free
  • After attending their annual pancake breakfast a few days ago (GREAT wheat or white pancakes with real maple syrup, cherries, and whip creme. Tasty sausages available.) we visited the maple syrup-cooking shack outside, hiked around the lovely woods then sat around the fire with some nice folks while the kids tried to pick up rocks with antlers. The kids love all the natural things available to touch in the lobby, from skulls to rocks to pinecones and much more! I checked out the gift shop this time and got two stick-looking pencils for my last buck. Great day!
