    Rip Van Winkle

    This place is great. The sie was spacious, shady and quite level. The owners and staff were friendly. .The store was well stocked. I enjoyed the grounds and the ice cream social. There is plenty of room for walking running etc., or just sitting by the stream. The facilities are very clean and well maintained. I almost forgot the nice snack bar - burgers and hot dogs, etc. This is one of my all time favorites. I will definitely go back.
