Really thought this would be a photo op but ended up spending over an hour here!!! So very cool. We all loved exploring this fort. Kids completed Jr Ranger program - Ranger Jillian was incredibly engaging and passionate. We spotted the bald eagle and juvenile in a nearby tree. Don’t miss this stop!
