We spent a three day weekend with the grandkids at this child themed park… The kids had a great time and didn’t really notice all the problems. To be fair, the park is still recovering from 4′ of water in the floods last year.

I found the grounds in a terrible state of disrepair. All of the RV pads are cracked and loaded with red ants. I came home with more than two dozen bites! I had to actually move weeds out of the way for over ten minutes to find my sewer connection! The tables are old and in some cases very unsafe. The grass is un-kept and in some places very overgrown. The restaurant has been closed due to fire for several years now, and nobody knows if it will even reopen. All of the swimming pools are in a state of repair and closed. The mini golf course was about half usable, the other half was flooded from the rain. To say the park was nothing like the website description would be the understatement of the year! The only well kept building on the property was the “Ranger Station” or general store/office. Golf cart rentals were $95.00/day! Oh my!

With all that said, the kids still had a great time! On the first day they did the ceramics, which was basically pick a pottery bear for $10/ea and a small paper plate with three dabs of paint on it. They had as much fun writing their names on the benches as doing the ceramics!

The recreation center is where most of the scheduled events happen. A large covered patio with a store inside.

Yogi Bear and Cindy Bear showed up on Friday evening. The park recruited my neighbor to play Yogi… very strange, but the younger one loved it.

 

All around the park were torn down flooded cabins. I thought this was a real and present danger to the naturally curious kids running around. I’m not sure why code enforcement doesn’t shut them down.

Here’s a nice little tour of the grounds. I let my grandson drive and he had a great time!

They had a sluice box where the kids could mine for gemstones. They really loved this one, and spent more than two hours in the RV identifying all of the artifacts.

The kids had a great time with the ceramics, the free paddle boats, the mini golf, what holes we could play, the “Hey Ride” and of course the golf cart. With that said, I will not be returning anytime soon!

Here is the map of the site. Be careful when you book if you need 50A service! I had to move twice to get it and the cashier had no clue. We were in the very run down site #76.
