“Traveled for an Archery Tournament. I just have to say that every Indiana State Recreation Department employee that we encountered were some of the NICEST and accommodating people ever. They wanted to hear our feedback regarding the course and overall it was the best tournament facility that I have ever been too. Looking forward to visiting again with family in the future!”
