  • Nice light display. Didn't seem to be as many as last year. We were kind of disappointed to find that some exhibits were closed but that could be because we went on a Wednesday evening. It wasn't super crowded with people. It's a good place to go with the kids and has cool historical displays about Stephen Foster. All in all we enjoyed ourselves but for us it was a long drive to find some stuff closed.
  • This was our first visit to the park. We and our 2 kids loved it. We had cabin 5 which happened to be a handicapped ready cabin. Loved it all, porch, sleeping space and entertaining space. We never missed the tv. There are 3 Geo Caches on property. The Christmas lights and the shops were great. We will be visiting next year!
  • Great show of Holiday lights. Park was absolutely amazing. So glad we got to do this as a family. Food was fun n good. Loved the fried Oreos n hot chocolate. Thanks for the memories.
  • One of my colleague inform me about this Park and told me to must visit festival of lights. It was indeed a worthy and joyful visit. Free popcorns and hot Cocoa increase the festivity of that cold night. Plan to visit it next year too.
  • I just loved it. Christmas time was so magical. Went with family, will definately return. A family adventure. Quiet and beautiful.
