While visiting near Denison, Texas we were aware of this park but decided to pass. On our last day there we decided to give it a try. Boy oh boy, were we ever glad we did! This is truly a "hidden gem" and is not...More

It was an interesting collection of buildings. It is nice that they trust people with a self guided tour. The maintenance seems to be lacking, which makes me worry about the long term prospects of this place. Granted there are log cabins that are over...More
