Our experience could have been better. You can not bring coolers or picnic with the kids in the swimming area and there are no signs or displayed information on this until you get to the swimming area.

The steps are remarkably well constructed for a place so deep in the nature. The last 5 min were a bit more challenging but our almost 5-year old was able to master it all with a bit of help.
