We enjoyed going there and was nice but a lot was closed due to a wedding so only had a small amount to look at . We were not there long . They could have let us know when we paid , had we known we would have came back another time.

There wasn't a great deal to see, and the view of the waterfall from the Treehouse was very poor, however the staff were all very welcoming / friendly / helpful.
The Treehouse itself could be fun for youngsters.

Must husband and I stopped here on our Anniversary. I stopped maily because I saw that there was a butterfly house on the website. The website failed to mention the butterfly house wasn't open until late June. Inside they were having some type of daycamp for kids, We looked around inside quickly, there was a fish. Along the trail was a tree house that you can climb, I was hoping there would be some some of view from the top but there really wasn't. On the trail they boast of animals. There was a Peacock and a Hawk, while they were pretty to look at (and this was the higlight of the 15 minutes we spent here)probally not worth the $8.00 donation we gave. I guess if you had little kids and came back in the summer it might be ok, but don't expect much.

What a great place. If you and your family leave here without learning a lot about nature, outdoors and critters you weren't paying attention. Loved the HUGE tree house, the snakes and other animals. Will go again at Maple Harvest time and maybe other Holidays. They really should charge more it is a great deal.
