“Saw mill”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Once again the interpreter was outstanding. Mr. Ed gave a wonderful explanation of how boards were cut before mills. The he moved the crowd to the mill and explained each part of the operation. Personable and knowledgable--- great combination!

“Timber!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Pretty neat bit of history. Went to the fort the day before so I expected more "stuff" to be going on. But well worth it. The adventure was cool too. Worth the extra 8 bucks!

“A Blast!!! DON'T MISS IT”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

This was a great day, we missed it last time we were up there. Wonderful history of the mill, don't miss Mr. Ed and the sawpit show. The view from the tower is absolutely beautiful but be prepared for all the steps! If you are able the Zip line and the canopy bridge (suspension bridge), they also have a rock wall which my son climbed right to the top!

“Good family outing”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Excellent saw mill demonstration.
Would recommend the outdoor adventure which includes zip-lining,
rock-climbling and bridge canopy walk all for 8 dollars extra.
Nice trails to walk in the woods.

“Take a hike!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Beautiful hiking trails throughout the park. They are well maintained (and litter free!), have color-coded timed routes marked, and at least when we went, were very peaceful and serene. We did the whole circuit and it was lovely. We stopped and read the trail markers about the natural features around us, looked for frogs sunbathing, and just took in the beauty of the forest.

We did not partake in the Adventure tour, though we heard great things about it.
