We went there for volksmarch. It was fantastic to climb to the top. I highly recommend doing this. Everyone was friendly and they had bathrooms and refreshments on the way to the top. Gray experience.

It’s a must see. I was there 40 years ago and yes there has been some progress but not as much as I would have thought. It must be daunting work. The museum was interesting. There was no Native American dancing which was disappointing but...More

$11/person to get in the park. $4/person to ride the bus. We spent an hour, but you could spend a lot more time.
