Please come out and join us!

Remember to bring binoculars, water, chair, and sunscreen.

See you there...

Also, we are having trouble securing housing for two counters this season. Please spread the word to anyone within a 10-15 mile radius of the park who may be interested in earning a little extra cash. The counters are two males, youngest is age 29. One room with two beds is the minimum space needed, allowing kitchen privileges for their meals, and they need internet access. They are responsible for cleaning their own mess, doing their own laundry, cooking their own meals, etc. They will have no time to party as they will work 6 out of 7 days per week. Guaranteed payment sent every month. Move in on August 13 or 14 and move out on November 16-17.
