The Pioneer Playhouse!

Kids and kids at heart can experience the life of a pioneer at the pioneer playhouse in the visitor center. Don a tri-cornered hat, a chamise, a hunting frock or linsey-woolsey britches and pack your possible bag!


Explore the visitor center museum and learn about the park through hands on exhibits. See actual artifacts and lighted displays. Touch the skins of animals!
