When we researched this place online it looks like a great time for kids to go and fish and do lots of activities. Our kids are 13. Our kids hated it. There was no shade and the picnic tables had trash on them. The obstacle course and the sled slide seemed unsafe. Popsicles and bottled water seemed expensive. We could go to a public park and have a much better adventure. Sorry but maybe for little kids to just run around this is a good idea but it was not what we expected.

Today was our first visit with our seven and three year old grandkids to Three Bears Acres. What a delightful day we had! Nothing high tech or adult inspired here. The kids used their own imaginations and their own bodies to have fun. We arrived at the same time a YMCA group did, so our first few hours were a bit noisy, but there was enough space and activities for everyone. The kids loved the huge inflated trampoline, and expended quite a bit of energy on it. Though the 7 year old scoffed at the mention of a mud kitchen, but she and her brother got quite creative there. There are large segments of pipe (3-4 ft diameter) for the kids to roll each other around in, and that brought out a ton of giggles. Thanks to Papa's efforts, quite a full tube of kids got rolled across the play field. After lunch at the concession trailer we headed to the tree house for some swinging, climbing and of course running and screaming. Just below that is a lovely pond and paddle boats, which we used to explore the pond, seeing many sunning turtles and several fish trying to catch bugs. The highlight for the kids was an alpine slide of sorts. Heavy duty plastic sleds, mounted on what looked like two skate boards, sped down a course, guided by PVC pipe so there can be no collisions. The speed at which we traveled was at the edge the middle aged grandmother's comfort zone, but the kids were wild about it! We brought home two sweaty, thirsty, exhausted kids, both claiming to have had a great fun. It was expensive, considering it was just a field and some woods, with simple kid friends structures and props, but not something our kids can enjoy in many places, so was worth it to us.

For what they charge to get in, this was definitely not what i expected. There's nowhere to go swimming and there's a huge lake only for paddle boats and after 5 minutes of being on 1 of 3 available boats we were getting nagged that other people were waiting. The "water slide" is no more than a tarp with a water hose running water down it that could easily be assembled in your own back yard. The spray and play area water smelled very stagnent. I like the concept of the mud kitchen which was very creative as well as the graffitti wall with the non toxic washable paint. For the few things that were available though, i dont think that it should be $15 per child and $8 per adult. I will most likely NOT be visiting again...

We came on a Friday. It was a great time. My kids loved everything to do. There is a sunny side and a shady side for those who are to hot.

Not the best location for an outdoor play area. You will see deer hunters standing on the side of the road, rifles and hunting dog trackers in hand. Overpriced, but the kids did enjoy it. I recommend dressing them in bright orange.
