I loved everything about this place. Everything there was so interesting. There was so much to see and do. Very hands on, many sights and I could go multiple times and still see something I missed.

Pet's are welcome in the campground and throughout the Park. The only place they aren't allowed is in the Zoo due to quarantine codes. The hiking trails are great for pets!
