We went out of season so were not able to go inside. It's a neat little place, not a really big area to explore. The drive there is beautiful and there are some neat little shops along the way, though. Worth checking out.

Beautiful little park right on the water. Lots of shoreline to wander around on and you can see the Cedar Point roller coasters across the water, which was neat.
