I grew up going to this park. I love that the community continues to support the park. I still enjoy going here and walking through the old cabins and reading the history. And don't miss the Salmon bake if you are visiting.

This was a great place to walk around . Lots to see and lots of history . Best of all itwas essentially free. There was a air museum that had a minimal fee to hi thru, well worth it. Highly recommend.

The diorama in the paddle wheeler was great. The food available was good. I don't think it's changed much since the mid-1970s. I had a different kind of fun than then.
