Overall Guide : We are a seasonal camper in your park and there really is not much for young kids to do outside of the pool. You need a play structure in the field by race track as you have lots of small... more kids down in over flow or camping, this way parents can keep watch of kids but the only play structure is down in field by docks. For the bigger kids put up basketball nets they would have a blast. Make the park more enjoyable for those who pay to use it.
