If the food truck drive in is here definitely go! Bring chairs or a blanket to sit on. Not much shade but nice when the sun dips below the tree line. Lots of good food, music and drinks.

No corn at a corn maze. And still charge full price. Don't bother. Total waste of time and money. They didn't even let the weeds grow. No irrigation to an income producing crop. And we drove an hour to get here!!!

Every autumn we visit Rural Hill to do the corn maze. It is AMAZING! Lots of fun, challenging, good value for the money, and a family tradition for us oldies, the kids, and now the grandkids.

Went here for the 2016 Beer Festival. Was pleasantly surprised in the event. Lots of great beer over 40 vendors, could have had more food vendors though. Was also kid friendly.

We love the park and the hospitality of the folks who welcomed us. The park is to be highly congratulated for their efforts in putting on the Loch Norman Scottish Games and Highland Festival. We will definitely comeback next year.
