This was a challenging, but super fun course! Each of the 18 holes was unique. We went with our 5 and 7 year old daughters. It was definitely difficult for them, but they had a blast. If you are competitive, this is the course for you! The fourth hole is a little tricky (and should be modified in my opinion). It goes uphill but it starts on a hill that goes down to the road. If you don't get the ball up the hill; it rolls back and goes through the fence and down into the busy road. It happened to two of us as well as another little boy, whose father wanted him to go into the road to get it :-/. I'm sure this happens often, they should put up a little brick wall or something. We had fun, and the girls loved the ropes course and the bumper cars. Wear tennis shoes if you plan to do the ropes course. If you don't have any, you can rent some for $2 :).

We took our 9 year old nephew here one weekend when he was staying with us. It's a fun little putt-putt course, and the store with it has lots of touristy nick-nacks, and a subway. Nice little place to play, and we thought it was a pretty good value. Something to do while visiting Indian River.

My sister did the ropes course. It is approximately 10 feet off the ground and loads of fun. Totally reccomend this place for families and couples. Overall a great place to spend quite a bit of time. Lots to do and the staff is absolutely wonderful.

This place is awesome to rent canoes to go on an family adventure. We went on the 3 hour canoe tour and the river ran fast and there were many obstacles. We only flipped once but were laughing the whole time! Enjoy! By the way, my family has experience kayaking.

I'm not sure why this place is coming up only as a golf course. We found this place at the recommendation of someone who lived here so we knew what we were looking for. THEY OFFER SO MUCH MORE.
We went specifically for the tubing tour of the Sturgeon river. For a modest price, they offer life jackets, tubes, and a ride up the river. From there we floated down the river about 1.5 hours. My wife and kids loved it. It was not a lazy float like you'd get at a water park. It was like a ride where you have to guide your tube through a maze alternating with stretches of tranquil natural river floating. This has easily been the highlight of our trip so far.
Easy access of the highway. They also offer a longer tubing option as well as rafting options. My only issue was at the end of the tube ride, which ends at the state park across the road, we had to cross the road to return to the rental site. The road was pretty busy and the cars drive fast past the place. However, it looks like there are breaks in traffic allowing you to cross. Staff very courteous and helpful. Overall an A.
