  1. This used to by my favorite until we went one time a couple years ago and the place was OVER RUN WITH TURKEY BUZZARDS. Those nasty creatures invaded the picnic area, stole food from tables and would not leave. They were clearly a health hazard, but the employees failed to do any thing about them. I placed several phone calls and no one would take responsibility. We haven’t been back since then. Who wants to get sick from those filthy scavengers? Additionally, they were Aggressive towards little kids. Aggressive, dangerous, dirty, health-hazards in the main picnic area–WHO’s in charge the people or the scavengers?
