  • great place to be except when driving and it's during holidays. the traffic is hectic. we spent 3hrs just to enter the resort. having traffic police isn't a bad idea
  • Nice place to be with family. Very peaceful environment. Those who enjoy boat rides that's the place to be. Zimparks charges $1for every car entering the lake recreational area.
