As far as I know it is still closed. It was severely damaged from the floods. I have heard speculations about opening but I have no confirmed info. You may be able to contact their website.

Response from Jefferjo | Reviewed this property |
A person close to the owner informed my husband that the park will be closed the rest of this season. The damage done by flood waters was pretty devastating. Buildings and artifacts were swept away.
Does this place include any lodging ? Or is it just a day place to go see Nature. Does anybody know what it costs to ride the horses? Sounds like you have to pay for EVERYTHING, even just walking around. Thanks!
