Hayride & Bonfire

The hayride includes a scenic ride through some of our many back roads while you're nestled in a wagon generously covered with a soft-bed of hay. A blanket is recommended for additional comfort. A skilled staff member drives and an additional staff member goes along for the ride. Safety is our concern - not chaperoning. The bonfire is our way to begin or end. Attending the fire is our staff's pleasure.

DATES: Hayrides are scheduled for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from May through the last weekend of October.

RESERVATIONS: Please call the park office at 863-1164 for reservations.
