We love to drive up here or stop on the way to the lake. Shaved ice and ice cream. The kids love it and we always get a pic in front of the stand!

They have a great snowcone/milkshake. They also sell Hershey's ice cream and snowcones. They have a few picnic tables for seating and are on the way to a state park.

Hi Todd, thank you for the review and rating! We appreciate it!

The Snowman is an old-fashioned shaved ice stand is an adorable, old-fashioned treat stand in the shape of a snowman with the ordering window in his belly. They serve shaved ice in dozens of flavors, ice cream, and their specialty, the Yeti, which is flavored,...shaved ice over vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream. So refreshing in the summertime! It's a great stop after spending the day at Moraine State Park. Reasonably priced and fun, with several tables with umbrellas, and kids can watch the horses on the horse ranch next door.More

Will M, Thank you for making us part of your camping experience. We appreciate the review and rating! Hope to see you again soon.

I went to this place mainly because my kids wanted to stop for a snow cone, but I was very surprised when I saw the amazing variety of shaved ice treats that were there. And they were definitely the best I have ever tasted! We...have kept coming back, even though it is a bit of a drive. Just yesterday we were on our way and got struck in bad traffic due to an accident and I tried to persuade the kids to go elsewhere, but they preferred to sit and wait a half hour to get thru rather that miss out - that says enough!More

Tom and Kristi M., WOW WOW WOW! It is these kind of reviews that make us want to keep on doing what we're doing (especially during peak season when we're logging a lot of hours). It really does say something when the kids are willing...More

This place is very convenient for us less than a mile away. Service is always great and they do a great job keeping everything clean. Not easy with all the sticky stuff.
