We purchased 2 roast beef sandwiches for a picnic. The sandwiches were good but cost too much. Next visit, we will try some of their hot food.

This was kind of the old time general store that had the surprise of a nice cafe inside. Food was all good and the taff were all very pleasant and attentive. Well worth going to and having a meal.

This is a nice place to pick up something quick, like soda or homemade chips or a hot dog. Family oriented place with tons of candy and bottle drinks. A few souvenirs. It's on the edge of town as you arrive from the park.

Long time visitor to the area, but had never stopped in. I was looking forward to trying something new this trip. Family got "to go" sandwhiches to eat at the National Park picnic area. Two of the sandwhiches were good. (The hotdog was not good.)...More
