Went to the tree walk village there. Kids loved it. Looked like they were expanding. Our kids were to small for the zip line this year we will be coming back next year

Loved the wagon ride, tour of maple syrup production, and funnel cake! Very kid friendly place. But I don't mind going without them. (Yes, maybe I'm just a big kid.)
