This is an awesome place to go! The man said it costs over $5000 to own all the gear required to do this sport and It is an amazing thing to watch, They have a small snack bar, and a nice shop.

I would agree with Rich G.. we had no problems staying in the parking area during our visit. I would say there were 15 camper/motorhomes there the night we stayed
