Think of this as "Tom Sawyer's Island" for bigger kids. This faux campground offers zip lines, cargo nets, forts and suspension bridges for exploration. Join Russell from Up and become a Wilderness Explorer by completing some of the challenges on the trail. Note that some challenges might have a height requirement.
This play area is beautiful and is another "hidden gem" of DCA. It offers amazing views of the park and is truly underrated. The playgrounds and trails are perfect for parents who just want to relax and take a break from everything and kids will absolutely love exploring this neat little area. 8/10
I love walking around this little area. I would however include AAs of the various animals that you can track with the explorer guide. Kids spend the time tracking why not reward it with a cool AA?
Little kids will enjoy it most, older kids may get bored. Treehouses with rope bridges/suspension bridges/cargo nets, kid zipline, slides, climbing wall, splash pad, cave, and logs to climb through. In addition, cast members can give kids a list to search for and if they find them, they get a Wilderness Explorer Badge, and there is a Wilderness Explorer Ceremony during the day, featuring the characters from Up.
I think this is great. My son did not want to leave. Could have spent all day here.
