Had a great time! The staff is friendly and professional. The prices are reasonable. Best Lumber Jack show you can see in Michigan. I have seen many lumber shows from Muskegon to Mackinaw for over 30 years.

We went and had an enjoyable time seeing the different skills of the lumberman. The best were the pole climb and the log roll. They did a great job of getting the audience involved.
