Nice sized gift shop with the usual items, plus some more unique choices. $1/person for the petting zoo and 3 carrots for $1. Sheep, ram, alpacas, donkey, and mini horses were all pretty friendly. It was hot when we were there so we didn't linger...More

We stopped by today, on our way back from Lava Point. It's a cute place to spend a few minutes. Last time we were here, we bought some very nice Indian sand art. Probably overpriced, but they do have a nice selection.

Should have tried the ice cream I hear it was really good. They have a little petting zoo outside that's set up like old buildings. The animals aren't very friendly if you don't buy some carrots. They charge you to go out to the petting...More

Had lunch there got the $6.99 burger and fries. That was very good. All of us got homemade ice cream and it was also good but the size of the scoop was more like a sample. Overall, the place could use a good cleaning. Gift...More
