Try their steak dinner on Friday nites with a live band playing folksy music. Make sure to look all around with the deer heads, snake skins, and stuffed wild turkeys hanging on the walls.

If you are staying at the state park... this is the closest thing you will have to a store within 30 miles or so. Great food and great service! It closes pretty early... like 3 or 4 o'clock.

The couple that runs this place are some of the nicest people you will meet. They were very welcoming and the owner walked outside to personally escort our group with an American flag. What a special place to visit.

In the heart of the forest is this special little general store that gives you a blast to the past. It's not made to look old, it really is old. They serve hot food and have banjo players.
