Their butterscotch donuts are like Amish Crack, once you taste them there is no stopping. You're totally hooked. They are best fresh in the bakery while still warm. Although not bad heated in the microwave later. I agree that you gain weight just driving by, if you can....

I have to agree with Sye, to a degree. As far as official rally things, there's nothing for kids (spoken as the guy who brought a 3 & 4 year old last year). But with some imagination there's lots to do in the area. We really didn't have to work hard to keep the kids entertained. Took them to different places in town, took them to the Coachmen factory to check out a particular rig we wanted to look at, bike rides, etc... And, the piece de resistance, free ice cream!

Now I also know toddlers are easier to entertain than teenagers, but if you treat it like any other week of camping (just with tons of other Forest River Enthusiasts around) whatever you would normally do to keep them entertained during a week of camping is just as viable at the rally as well.

I would imagine the teenagers will adapt quite rapidly as teenagers are quite resourceful.

I agree with Kaadk & OC - I would think a 16 year old could find things to do - and there is a bike path that leads right in to town.


The tours might be of interest to the teen as well - as well as the freebie factory tours.


Last year, I recall seeing maybe a dozen teens on site ... maybe FROG Bob will have better resolution on this as the reservations are set up in his spreadsheet.


Perhaps folks who are attending with teens might want to arrange some sort of informal meet & greet for teens early in the week so that the teens will have other teens to hang out with when mom & dad are attending that gross & boring "Everything you wanted to know about RV sewage systems" lecture
