Have a bison burger, feed the fish and visit one-of-a-kind Tingler’s Mill. Don’t miss Joe’s Trees on Rt. 42 or Wilderness Adventure off of Rt. 615.. No stoplights. One franchised restaurant- Subway. Two seasons—- hunting and not-hunting. Scenic views, lots. Your next Adventure is Just around the Bend.
