Cool place

Well, I'm now back. Really.
If you want to see where we were, click here.
It's a very cool place, in point of fact. The amusement park is an old-time format park; none of this one price admission stuff (although you can get a handstamp for all-day or nighttime riding); two great rollercoasters; a classic carousel; and a lot of other fun rides for the young and young-at-heart. In addition, you can even bring your own picnic basket (and Yogi Bear won't steal it!) or cook out on grills provided in the picnic areas. There's a good swimming pool there, too, complete with a pair of water slides.
And the campground is cool, too. We tent-camp. But there are showers at a number of locations around the campground, and the facilities also enable the ladies who are so inclined to use their blow-dryers and curling irons.
The campground is divided into a couple of sections. We prefer to stay in the "Canadian" section of the campground... it's a touch farther away from the park entrance, but it's also quieter. Our clan and Judy's sister and her clan (3 kids, twins aged 8, and a soon-to-be 4-year-old) claimed adjacent sites on Saskatchewan Avenue.
It's an annual trip for us and it's always worth while.
