While these ideas are inexpensive, the trip is still one that’s packed full of fun, excitement, and wonderful memories to be made.

And reconnecting with nature has never been easier with fishing ponds, walking trails, picnic & cook-out facilities, and peaceful parks throughout the property.

Right outside the Eagle Mountain Gate, The General Store is a step back in time to slower days of the old general mountain store where friends gather for special activities, every day needs, good food, good times, and arts and crafts. The General Store dishes up hearty breakfasts, and the deli is a popular lunch time spot. Picturesque picnic tables outline the entrance of the store, giving the ideal opportunity to enjoy the spring sunshine with your sandwich.
