The only thing I have ever gone to Lloyd’s Wildlife Refuge for was to shoot. And it is a terrific place to do that! I’ve been to the rifle range, and it is very good. And I have been skeet shooting there, and they have a terrific facility for that as well. It did not make me shoot any better though.:-)

I’m super new to riding and I was on my second time doing trails (1st time at Eagle Creek). I ended up cracking my clutch cover letting most of my trans oil out. I had to ditch my bike and walk back to the entrance.

When I got back, the “Old Man” (that’s what he likes to go by) that runs the place was going to ask the other rider (only one person riding because it was crazy hot that day) out on property to give me tow back.

While waiting for the other rider to get back, Old Man kept me company for quit a while. I learned the place has some really cool history.

Turns out that rider had broke down as well. Old Man then offered me use of his duct tape and some oil to limp me back. I was able to mend it enough to start riding back. While limping back, I ran across a couple of ATV riders on the trail that recently showed up to ride. While I was back and fixing my bike, Old Man asked them to see if I needed a tow if the duct tape didn’t work.

As for the riding, it was awesome. Not rutted out like the Dirty Turtle in Bedford.

Overall, I can’t believe how helpful and nice Old Man was! Not to mention the other riders that offered to help me as well. I’ll be sure to be more prepared the next ride.

Great facilities for a birthday party. We love to rent shelter 4 now. It’s RIGHT next to the bathrooms and the new playground, and far enough away from the main parts of the park that you can enjoy the privacy of your party.

Visited for lunch recently and walked into a huge restaurant with friendly greeters and wait staff. The personal pizza was well prepared and tasty with plenty of toppings. Not the best pizza I’ve had but certainly good. Their side salad was huge and fresh. Of the two, the salad was better I thought. A ton of food for lunch. Overall, not bad at all.

Took my Sebring to this shop for what I thought was a leaking radiator hose. I even said that to the owner. Instead the pressure check indicated a faulty cap. Instead of ripping me off for a $200 repair they simply charged me $2 for a new cap. Finding an honest repair shop is almost as difficult as finding an honest attorney. I never go anyplace else. Honesty, quality and integrity are found here.

Food is great!! Friendly folks work here, although I agree with another reviewer that they need to give building a good clean; please don’t change the decor of the restaurant! It’s charming. Know that what needs to be clean is spotless… kitchen and food prep areas specifically!
I will return as often as possible! There are too few truck stops like this around anymore!

I’m sure it’s a good place to get your vehicle repaired, but all I did was drive by like I do every day.

Lovely place! Relaxing atmosphere. Clean and friendly service. The coffee was the best I’ve had in a long time. Strong, full of flavour no nonsense coffee. Others in my group had the donuts and said was delicious. Saw other costumers being served generous portions of food. It looked good! Will make sure I come here again next time in town.

Parks are poorly maintained. Very little in the way of nature trails, despite an abundance of wooded area. JB Miller park is so overgrown the trail is impassible at a certain point, so at least 50% of it is not usable. There are no public pools, the lakes are dirty and swimming is mostly banned. No wonder everyone in this town is hooked on drugs. There is nothing to do. My family and I will be moving as soon as humanly possible, and I know plenty of other people who are of the same mindset. Anything worth doing here is private and priced for those who make six figures. The rest of us are left with the decaying remains of a time when the government cared about its people. This place has no future, and local and state political officials have no desire or intention to invest in quality of life for residents. If you make above 40k a year and under 100k, do yourself a favor and relocate to a place that invests your tax money in making your life more tolerable, as opposed to stealing it, using it to prop up failing conglomerates (Answers in Genesis, anyone?), and letting everything else rot.

A bit deserted in all honesty! One treasure is Dixie’s Treasures down in the lower part of the plaza. But needs some work!
