We had such an amazing time, the staff were super friendly and made us feel right at home. There is so much variety in what you collected it was an awesome adventure for everyone involved. Best way to celebrate my littles ones adventure bday. Will be going back as much as possible. Keep it up guys, you are giving us something to do when we need it most.

The folks here are incredibly nice! They took the time to explain everything about the rock sluice to my kiddos and came around to see how we were doing through out our stay. I love the cute, campy outdoor environment, the snack shack is awesome. Everything is just awesome.
