This place is safe and clean and children can run around without too much worry. This place is also set up to bleed money out of you. Before you go, you need to talk to your kids and explain to them that everything here out of the ordinary costs something and they need to explore the camp a bit instead of wanting the "flashy" things set up to make more money for the park. The owner has to be making a killing on this place, and charging a little to cover costs on things to do in the park is ok, but sometimes it gets over the top. Small example...charging $3 for some pancakes for a family of six puts the cost near $20. A box of pancake mix is less than $2. Why do you need to make money on this? I think charging a dollar would cover costs and would be a small way of showing that the park is truely for families and not just a way to gouge them out of every dollar they bring with them. Don't even get me started on the store (sell packs of water instead of making them singles and charging a dollar a piece...you will make more in the long run.....these are things families want and need while there).
There are a lot of rules and a lot of "older" people (Rangers....not sure where they come from or who they are...but they are everywhere) that are there to make sure you follow them. Everyone was really nice though and the older folks can be grumpy, but I really did not see it from this group.
I have mixed feelings about this park because it is pretty nice, but I hate when prices are set to obviously take advantage of people. My advice is to take extra water, snacks, etc, because you will pay throught the nose at this place. Bring extra activities for the children because of the same reason. I may not go back again because in this current economic climate, this place really is not a bargain for what entertainment value we got out of it.
