  • We went to the skating trail on a very snowy day so it was pretty quiet, and the trails were amazing! No ruts or holes in the ice, trails were kept clean, staff was very friendly, inexpensive, entertainment, free bannock making, it was a 6/5 experience! Only feedback I would have is maintain a social media account to post trail conditions. We were very hesitant to go because of all the snow over night, but the trails were actually perfect.
  • Went towards the end of summer and there was minimal staff. Unfortunately don’t have a lot of time to stop by when not on vacation so was slightly disappointed. However the staff that was working was amazing. Kids Loved the boats and “swabbing the deck”
  • The site has come a long way in the last twenty years. They have embraced alternative sources of revenue and it is working for both them and the community. So glad to see it back in action offering enjoyable experiences to visitors.
  • I love every moment I spend at this place. Halloween is a fantastic night out for adults and kids.
  • My family and I went to the ghost tours they do around Halloween and it was lots of fun. Nice historical location and a bunch of neat stories from the tour guide.
