A brief stop at the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Clubhouse building is included in this tour. These tours are covered in the park admission fee.
Due to the length of this tour, it is not recommended for children aged seven (7) years and under. Please be advised that because we cannot ensure that car seats are properly and safely installed on the vans and/or the bus, we cannot accommodate them on van tours. If a child arrived to the park in a car seat, they must always be in a car seat. No allowances will be made for "holding" children while on a van tour. Thank you for your understanding.
