We actually went here to stay at the Abe Martin Cabins. Driving through the park it is very clean with a lot of activities for families. We are hoping to go back in the fall.

Many blessings and congratulations to the both of you! Brown County is always a beautiful place to visit. The weather should be cool and the color just starting to shine in the natural beauty of the woods in early October.
