I live in the area, so I'm here several times during the summer. It's my favorite place to be whether I'm hiking solo or entertaining f/f from out of town. You don't need a 4x4 to get there and best to avoid weekends. Decent food at their on site restaurant, although a bit pricey. It's my happy place and highly recommend it!

Only stopped in for a short visit, but enjoyed it thoroughly! The bar staff was attentive and courteous. Being in one of the most beautiful places one could imagine doesn't hurt the way drinks go down either!

Be sure to have a car with high clearance. This is a wonderful place to take the family! Easy (6 mile round trip) hike to a water fall. Lots of activities on site. You can rent canoes, SUP boards, horses... There is even a place to eat. Highly recommend making the trek.

Visited 25 years ago but this time it had quite the physical change. A restaurant, cabins, bathrooms, gift shop, a place to have a party, etc. There were going to be 4 weddings there that night. They must have had spectacular views! Hubby and I did the canoeing on the lake while our daughter did her own paddle boarding. So much fun. The entire staff (gift shop, canoes, and restaurant) were all helpful and happy. We did not do the 3 mile one way water falls hike but probably will next time. We were told the hike was mostly flat and worth it. We will definitely go back a 3rd time!

We enjoyed the canoeing and paddle boarding. The staff was very helpful and informative. We also ate lunch at the restaurant there. It was very good and offered a lot of variety. The only drawback is the bumpy, dusty road to get there, but it really is worth it.
