Great for a quick camp. Fishing and mellow hikes among colorful mini-cliffs. Get site 20 and you can fall asleep to the stream's riffles. An oasis amongst all the corn fields.

What a great place to eat while roadtrippin' across the country. Friendly and filling family style meal. Did I mention fast, too? Breakfast anytime.

Very accommodating excellent food. I really enjoyed the platter meal with gyro. Best baba ganoush.

Absolutely the best food for the cost in the area. Very healthy. The waiters help select good dishes for you. Make sure to get bread as well as a curry.

Great stop for a swim in a most turgid artificial lake that is full of silt. Campground does not have water. The bathrooms smell worse then the large dairy farms that you pass on the highway. But what do you need for $7?
