This place was truly great. I was impressed considering it's a county park. Lots of trails, historical monuments, a Native American replica village, a replica American fort, and a beautiful, small lake. We had a nice picnic, took a hike, and explored history. There was something for everyone in the family.
Amazing event! Been coming here since I was a kid, my mom and her partner both work the event each year as well. Can't wait to see it again next year!
