I can't believe I didn't write about this sooner. This is a phenomenal resort with a very nice atmosphere. Great rides, great food, great service, great cleanliness, great in general. The park has rides for everyone, every type of person you can think of. (Literally anyone from ages one to 100. Any single year.) An annual or biannual event in our family. There are many hotels very close around, and there's also cabins to camp in. A fantastic, rather clean pool with a slide and a trolley to get to the park from the cars lot. Traffic guardsmen to direct parking to make it clean and orderly. Updated clean bathrooms. Wide assortments of food. Thrilling coasters. Scenic rides. Entertainment. Ubiquitous ticket booths. Very fun games and good toys. Just a fantastic place in general. Also, there's an absolutely marvelous charming little candy cottage. It's in a very nice city with history you won't want to miss.

Red Deer at Rolling Hills Farm

Come see majestic red deer. Fun & educational for adults and children.

Reviewed By Celeste S - Pennsylvania

We had so much fun on our visit to the red deer farm with our 2-year-old son. We had some time before the tour started when we got there, but the time passed quickly feeding the goats behind the store and patting a large buck, Teddy, who was in an enclosure by the goats. (He was there to get used to seeing lots of people, as he would be the buck on display at the county's fair later in the month.)

The tour was wonderful and close to an hour long. We paid for two buckets of deer pellets to take with us to feed the deer. I would definitely recommend this, especially if you have children, because the deer are really gentle and take the large pellets right from your hands. Our son wasn't scared at all to feed the deer and he loved seeing them stick their heads through the slats in the wagon. The farm is huge and the tour takes you through several different enclosures, so you can see all the different deer up close, from the females with fawns all the way to the giant males, with their impressive racks. This is an activity we will probably do yearly with our son.

A note on when to go. We went at the very beginning of September and they had already cut the racks off many of the male deer to prevent them from hurting each other during the rutt. So to really see lots of antlers, visit earlier in the summer. Babies are born in late spring, so if you want to see really little fawns, visit then.

This is a farm, the deer are used for meat and they offer hunts as well. If you are overly sensitive about such things, please don't visit. However, if you are a lover of venison, you will find the store has two refrigerators/freezers full of venison treats. We got smoked venison kielbasi and it was delicious!

This is one of my favorite places to go to photograph sunsets. I used to fish from shore there, but it seems like the water level kept getting lower.

This is a wonderful trail for a myriad of activities. You will see runners, people walking dogs or riding bikes with kids, even people fishing. Very quiet and peaceful. We use it all 4 seasons though it does not get cleared or plowed when it snows so be warned and wear boots or yaktrax.
