Lake

Other Great Outdoors
“- Cash only at the concessions counter but you can get cash at the check in line - I recommend bringing lunch and eating at the picnic tables down by the playground (they don't want you bringing outside food to the concession stand tables for obvious reasons). However, I went a few weekends ago and there were so many consecutive birthday parties going on that there was no seating anywhere, so we ended up eating in our car. Maybe bring a picnic blanket in case this happens to you. - The snack bar stocks the typical unhealthy stuff but we always get a twist cone (they do sell adult and kiddies sizes.)- There are a few port-a-pottys but I recommend using the restroom up by the train/concession ”
