  • Really neat and very helpful guides. The guide John is one of the more easygoing and very patient guides I have spoken to. Great for father son time. Definitely recommend for the person you love who enjoys hands-on history
  • Would have loved to have visited here but our national park pass was not honored notwithstanding this site is overseen by the National Parks Service! The old woman at the ticket counter smugly stated that the shuttle fees of $36 for the four of us were how they made all their money and that nothing is free. Gee lady, we paid $80 for a yearly pass for four that's honored at every single national park in America (including shuttle buses) except for THIS one so it's not like we're asking for a handout! Add in that we're a military family! Sorry Ike, we love you but very clear that a small segment of the National Parks Service are greedily exploiting your legacy and stabbing military families in the back. What a disgusting shame....
